Eugene O’Neill’s timeless classic of class and identity.

A classic expressionist masterpiece by Nobel prize-winner Eugene O’Neill, The Hairy Ape tells the story of Yank, a labourer who revels in his status as the strongest stoker on a transatlantic ocean liner. But when Yank is called a ‘filthy beast’ by the overbred daughter of a steel merchant, he experiences an awakening of consciousness that leads him on a journey through the wealthy neighbourhoods and disenfranchised underbelly of New York society. Searching for a way to belong, Yank is forced to confront primal questions about his true place in the world.

Directed by the acclaimed, multi-award-winning director Richard Jones. Credits include Anna Nicole (Royal Opera House), Public Enemy, The Government Inspector, Annie Get Your Gun (Young Vic), A Midsummer Night’s Dream (RSC), Tales from the Vienna Woods (National Theatre) and Into the Woods (West End).

The Hairy Ape is an iconic piece of American drama brought to stage by a visionary of British theatre.

Review: THE HAIRY APE at The Young Vic

13 Nov 2015

The Hairy Ape - Old Vic Theatre Things are changing at The Old Vic.

It seems that Kevin Spacey’s successor as Artistic Director, Matthew Warchus, is trying to shake things up by programming work that lacks the must-see glamour of past Old Vic productions.
