Just in: London theatre chief resignsmain
David Lan has resigned after 17 years as artistic director of the Young Vic.
He brought numerous directors to work in London for the first time, among them Patrice Chéreau, Luc Bondy, Ivo Van Hove, Benedict Andrews and Simon Stone.
Under David’s leadership, the Young Vic has been a cosmopolitan hub in London’s theatreland. We will need it more than ever after Brexit.
