Changing Destiny will reopen the venue next month and runs from 9 to 21 August 2021.

Based on the 4,000-year-old Egyptian poem about the Warrior King Sinuhe, Changing Destiny features two performers playing, according to the production, 1,000 characters.

The play is written by Ben Okri and directed by Kwame Kwei-Armah, with set and costume design by Sir David Adjaye and Adjaye Associates, lighting design by Jackie Shemesh, sound design by XANA, projection design by Duncan McLean, composition by Tunde Jegede, movement direction by Rachael Nanyonjo, with Jerwood assistant director Khadifa Wong and Boris Karloff trainee assistant director Xanthus Peter.

Changing Destiny is the first show to be broadcast through Best Seat in Your House, the Young Vic’s immersive multi-camera broadcast experience. There will be a captioned, relaxed and audio described performance during its run in-house too.

Live performances of the show at the Young Vic will take place from 9 July – 21 August.
