The Valley of AstonishmentThe experiences of people who see the world in a radically different light are at the heart of The Valley of Astonishment, a brand new work by legendary director Peter Brook and his long-time collaborator Marie-Helene Estienne. The pair return to the Young Vic after their 2012 international hit 'The Suit' ("a little masterclass in theatre direction" The Telegraph), while William Nadylam and Jared McNeill - who both starred in 'The Suit' - return, appearing alongside Complicite colleagues Kathryn Hunter and Marcello Magni who both previously appeared at the Young Vic in 2008's 'Fragments'.

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.
