- Trevor takes to the Young Vic
TREVOR NUNN directs David Almond's Skellig at the Young Vic December 3. The children's fantasy drama takes place in a venue just a short walk away from the National Theatre where Nunn made his name as the resident artistic director.
Nunn's reign at the helm of the country's largest subsidised theatre lasted five years. He stepped down this April to try his hand as a freelance director and live off the proceeds of various West End transfers. His successful production of Anything Goes is currently moving to the Theatre Royal Drury Lane to replace another of his hits, My Fair Lady.
Skellig marks a departure from these popular musicals and classics. The play takes its name from a fantastical little creature living in the garage of one unhappy young boy, and is based on the Whitbread award winning book. Nunn's career as a children's entertainer looks off to a fine start.
