Red Demon Opens at Young Vic

News   Red Demon Opens at Young Vic David Lan's Young Vic begins its 2003 season with Red Demon Feb. 3.

Directed by one of Japan's foremost men of the theatre, Hideki Noda, Red Demon is a universal story with a Japanese sensibility, acted by a European cast. Underscored with Noda's trademark wit, this is a play that reveals the conflict between compassion and suspicion in a closed community.

Red Demon is one of a series of plays lined up for the Young Vic, which as a theatre is maintaining its reputation for presenting international plays as well as fascinating new takes on established British classics - as with the relocation of Hobson's Choice (opens July 2) from Edwardian to modern-day Salford, where it is now set in an Asian family rather than an English one.
