The production is set to play at the theatre from the 9th July until the 21st August.

The Young Vic has confirmed that Joan Iyiola (Duchess of Malfi, RSC) and Ashley Zhangazha (Tina The Musical, West End) are set to star in the new stage adaptation of the 4,000-year-old Egyptian poem about the Warrior King Sinuhe by Ben Okri.

Vividly brought to life with design by acclaimed architect Sir David Adjaye, and directed by Young Vic Artistic Director Kwame Kwei-Armah, this radical in-the-round staging of one of the earliest known literary texts explores the essence of humanity and the complexities of immigration.

The creative team for the production is set to include: Set and Costume Design by Sir David Adjaye and Adjaye Associates, Lighting Design by Jackie Shemesh, Sound Design by XANA, Projection Design by Duncan McLean, Composition by Tunde Jegede, Movement Direction by Rachael Nanyonjo, with Jerwood Assistant Director Khadifa Wong and Boris Karloff Trainee Assistant Director Xanthus Peters.

Changing Destiny will play at the Young Vic Theatre from the 9th July until the 21st August.
