Introducing The Old Vic 12 2018–19


Today we are proud to announce the collection of artists who will make up this year’s Old Vic 12.

Launched in 2015, The Old Vic 12 is now in its fourth year, nurturing and developing the next generation of theatre practitioners by providing access and insights into theatre-making and mentoring from industry experts alongside the opportunity to deliver masterclasses to other emerging artists and collaborate with each other to create brand new work.

Matthew Warchus, Artistic Director, said: ‘For The Old Vic 12 to now be in its fourth year is testament to the variety of emerging artists looking for practical and collaborative ways to gain insights into the creative industries. I am proud that this vital initiative is something The Old Vic is able to sustain, despite our own lack of public subsidy. It is heartening to have had an overwhelming number of applications this year and we are excited to see what this year’s collective will achieve over the next 12 months.’
