Stars joined the cast of the Young Vic last night to celebrate the opening of Twelfth Night.

The show is Kwame Kwei-Armah and Shaina Taub's adaptation of Shakespeare's play infused with songs.

Gabrielle Brooks takes on the role of Viola in the piece, alongside a cast including Jyuddah Jaymes and Gerard Carey.

Black Panther star Letitia Wright joined the cast, ahead of her appearance at the theatre in The Convert later this year.

In her four star review of the show, WhatsOnStage critic Sarah Crompton described it as having a 'benign heart and inclusive warmth'.
