Song from Far AwayFollowing his sensational A View from the Bridge, Ivo van Hove directs a new play by Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time). Eelco Smits stars as Willem the returning prodigal son in Song from Far Away, a drama for one-actor about a young man's homecoming to an estranged family in the aftermath of the death of his brother. Returning home to Amsterdam, Willem attempts to reconnect with his sibling through a series of letters.

 

About The Young Vic

Knocked together out of breeze blocks for a minimal budget in 1970, Lawrence Olivier's experimental theatre was intended to last for five years, and provide an inspiration for the new generation of performers. But this was an experiment that worked and, years later, the Young Vic remains south London's premier venue for the contemporary, the shocking, the controversial, and the bizarre.
