Announced today, The Old Vic latest season of shows includes two world premieres, a UK premiere and the return of a much loved, joyful Christmas hit show.

In September the venue welcomes ZooNation: The Kate Prince Company with their exciting new show, Sylvia.

This production stands as the highlight in a range of Old Vic projects celebrating the centenary of the first women in Britain getting the vote.

The Old Vic turns 200 this year and was established by two tenacious, visionary women - Emma Cons and Lilian Baylis - so it is appropriate that the venue is celebrating Sylvia Pankhurst's world-changing achievements in the advancement of democracy and equality.

Following Sylvia is 17c - a new dance work about Samuel Pepys from New York choreographer Annie-B Parson.

Annie-B previously made a great impact in London with her infectious and dazzling choreography in the David Byrne musical Here Lies Love, and now she is bringing her own very popular company, Big Dance Theater, to London for the first time.

In October, Emma Rice launches her new company with a rambunctious adaptation of Angela Carter's theatrical novel, Wise Children.

And the festive season at The Old Vic will again be celebrated with mince pies, satsumas, handbells, much singing, dancing, tears and laughter (not to mention copious snowfall and a turkey on a zipwire) in the return of Jack Thorne's euphoric version of A Christmas Carol.

Artistic director, Matthew Warchus remounts the show, transforming the auditorium again.

Mr Warchus says ...

"Of all the shows I have ever directed, I think this might well be my favourite.

It is conceived to be enjoyed with or without children so don't miss out!"
