Off Book - a podcast by the Young Vic

By Young Vic Theatre

The Young Vic theatre's podcast series, Off Book, features interviews with many of the exciting artists who have visited us recently. Our conversations bring to light people's first experiences with the arts and theatre, how their background has informed the work they produce today and how they have developed throughout their career. At the Young Vic we tell stories that change the way people look at the world. Our shows are created by some of the world's great artists - of this generation and the next. With roots deep in our neighbourhoods, we reach out to theatre makers across the globe. We have the most diverse and engaged audience in London, enjoying work of the highest quality at low prices. In our award-winning super-flexible theatre, you'll never feel you're in the same place twice.
