The Old Vic "New since 1818" by BBH London

This beautiful short film rounds off The Old Vic's bicentenary celebrations by presenting the story, essence and attitude of the independent theatre in London.

Shot on location at The Old Vic, the ad by BBH London stars Erin Doherty, an actress who will soon appear as Princess Anne in series three of Netflix’s The Crown. Doherty plays the sole protagonist, the 200-year-old Old Vic personified. As the female essence of the 200-year-old building, she muses over memories, social purpose and creative philosophy. The ad will run in over 40 UK cinemas as well as online. It was created by Oliver Short and directed by Thomas Bryant through Blink.
