A FACE IN THE CROWD at the Young Vic

10 Sep 2024 // Young Vic // 7:30 PM 9 Nov 2024 // Young Vic // 7:30 PM

Based on an original story by Budd Schulberg and the Warner Bros Film.

When local radio producer Marcia Jeffries interviews drunk drifter “Lonesome Rhodes” in his jail cell, she immediately sees his potential and gives him a slot on her show. But as Lonesome’s fans grow more clamorous and the politicians start taking notice, Marcia realises she has unleashed a force she can no longer control.

Featuring original songs by Grammy Award-winner Elvis Costello, A Face in the Crowd highlights the dangers of elevating celebrities to positions of unchecked power. Young Vic Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah directs the world premiere of Sarah Ruhl’s (Eurydice, The Clean House) adaptation of the Hollywood classic.
