We’re thrilled to announce that A Streetcar Named Desire will be extended until 19 September!

Because of our flexible auditorium, we’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, we’ll 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 we 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 we are doing even more to improve the experience including additional website support and doubling the number of team members on the phones for next Wednesday. However we anticipate that it may take longer to book than usual. We thank you in advance for your patience.

Look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

  1. So pleased more people will get to see this. I managed to get tickets for August, but not without many hours persevering on the website!

  4. Such a shame that I can’t get tickets, I did the sound for an amature production around 30 years ago and we lifted a spiral staicase from the Mermaid who had just finished their run of this wonderful play. Still have the soundtrack from the 1974 Martin Shaw/Claire Bloom version as well. Wow, that’s 40 years ago!!

  5. Damn! Hubs and I in London and wanted tickets for Tuesday September 2. We’ll be in London Aug 30- Sept 3 can anybody help?

  6. We got £5 standing tickets & were given seats, in fact i couldn’t see anyone standing at our performance & there were at least 15 people in the standing queue
