Katie Mitchell's adaptation of Dr Seuss' The Cat in the Hat will transfer to the Young Vic following its premiere at the National's Cottesloe Theatre, running January 28 to March 13.

The production is part of the Young Vic's newly announced spring 2010 season, which will also include I Am Yusuf and This is My Brother (January 19 - February 6), written and directed by Amir Nizar Zuabi on the theater's mainstage. The play centers a family drama that unfolds in 1948 as war begins.

Additionally, Luc Bondy will direct David Harrower's new adaptation of Arthur Schnitzler's tragic romance Sweet Nothings (February 25 - April 10). The third spring entry on the Young Vic's main stage will be Fiona Shaw's ENO/Young Vic co-production of Hans Werner Henze's opera Elegy for Young Lovers (April 24 - May 8), which focuses on a poet who devours people to nourish his art and ego.
