New Young Vic Season – Kate Hewitt to direct in Main House

Kwame Kwei-Armah’s eagerly anticipated first season as the Young Vic’s artistic director has been announced, and it features a new production of JESUS HOPPED THE A TRAIN directed by Kate Hewitt. The play is written by Pulitzer Prize winner Stephen Adly Guirgis (The Motherfucker with the Hat), and is a dark comedy about the contradictory nature of faith. It will come to the Main House in February.

“Inside the lockdown wing of Rikers Island prison, a frightened young man accused of murdering a cult leader is confronted with a charismatic born-again serial killer and a sadistic guard.  Will one man’s redemption lead to another’s damnation?”

Tickets are available here:

Before then Kate will direct COCK, by Mike Bartlett, at Chichester Festival Theatre.
