Two actors, a thousand characters, and the story of how a kingdom is changed… 

An epic new adaptation of the 4,000-year-old Egyptian poem about the Warrior King, Sinuhe written by Booker Prize-winner Ben Okri

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

Changing Destiny will be the first production to be broadcast on Best Seat in Your House, the Young Vic's multi-camera streaming platform. For more information about Best Seat in Your House click here.
