Varun Chandra appointed trustee of the Young Vic board

Varun Chandra, Hakluyt’s managing partner, has been appointed a trustee of the board of the Young Vic theatre in London. This appointment was announced by Glenn Earle, chair of the Young Vic board, Kwame Kwei-Armah, artistic director, and Despina Tsatsas, executive director.

Varun said: “Of all the theatre I’ve watched over the years, it is at the Young Vic that I’ve seen the most daring, the most provocative, and the most thought-provoking performances. I’m therefore delighted to be joining the board of this fantastic institution, one of the most brilliant and innovative of its kind in the world. The breadth of the Young Vic’s work and impact is extraordinary, and its success in identifying, enabling and promoting emerging talent is particularly noteworthy. It will be an honour to play a role in furthering this mission, and I’m greatly looking forward to working with Kwame, Despina and the other members of their outstanding team.”
