The Old Vic Extends Run of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE, Thru Sept 19

The Old Vic has extended its run of A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE at the Young Vic by two weeks to 19 September 2014. Tickets go on sale Wednesday (16 July) at 10am.

Gillian Anderson is Blanche DuBois, Ben Foster is Stanley and Vanessa Kirby is Stella in Tennessee Williams' timeless masterpiece.

As Blanche's fragile world crumbles, she turns to her sister Stella for solace - but her downward spiral brings her face to face with the brutal, unforgiving Stanley Kowalski. Visionary director Benedict Andrews returns to the Young Vic following his Critics' Circle Award-winning Three Sisters.

Because of their flexible auditorium, they've also been able to add more seats for every performance. Which means that there will be thousands of tickets on sale next Weds 16 July at 10am!

To give as many people as possible a chance to see the show, they will also be holding our first-ever day seat lottery. Head on down to the Young Vic at 5PM each day and we'll take your name. Names will be drawn at 5.30PM with all tickets £20, with a £10 concession for Under 26s. A few bits of housekeeping:

  • There will be a limit of 2 tickets per person for lottery winners
  • On matinee days, please arrive at 1PM for a 1.30PM drawing for the matinee performance only
  • If you don't get lucky in the lottery, please feel free to join the returns queue

Due to popular demand, day seats and returns will only be available in person.

Although they took extra measures with our website and Box Office when we first went on sale, because of overwhelming demand for tickets (a Young Vic record!), many of you had difficulties booking. This time they are doing even more to improve the experience including additional website support and double the number of team members on the phones for next Wednesday. However we anticipate that it may take longer to book than usual.
