Award-winning director/playwright and former Casualty star Kwame Kwei-Armah, has been announced as the new artistic director of the Young Vic theatre in London.

He said:

“To walk into the Young Vic is to come face-to-face with everything I love about theatre.” To lead this magnificent theatre at this time in our nation’s history, after such a visionary as David, excites me beyond words. I can’t wait to get started.”

Kwei-Armah will succeed David Lan, who is stepping down in 2018 after 18 years in the role.

He will announce his first season of work as Young Vic artistic director in the new year.

Congratulations Kwame.
