The Sherriff Talks - A Theatre Peculiar and Almost Awful: The Old Vic

Opened in 1818, The Old Vic would eventually become home to Laurence Olivier’s National Theatre where it remained until it moved to its new home on The South Bank. But for over 200 years some of the greatest and in some cases, most controversial actors, have trodden the boards of what was known as ‘Queen Victoria's Own Theayter’.
