This book introduces young people to the theatrical processes behind the scenes of one of the country's best known and best loved theatres. The Young Vic is famous for its hugely successful productions of classic and modern plays, which have attracted widespread critical acclaim. Here Ruth Little, the theatre's associate artistic director, looks at the processes involved in staging a theatrical work with young people from transforming stories into action in GRIMM'S TALES, tackling classical dialogue in DR FAUSTUS, developing character in RAISIN IN THE SUN, or staging a musical in SIMPLY HEAVENLY. Each chapter is based on actual work led by professional directors at the Young Vic and includes multiple ideas for how to enthuse young actors and directors with the possibilities of theatre, including costume and design, running rehearsals and much, much more.With a preface by the Young Vic's Artistic Director, David Lan, THE YOUNG VIC BOOK is full of insights from actors and directors who have worked at the theatre including Jude Law, Lennie James, Frank Dunlop and Barbara Houseman.
