Andrew Scott to appear in new play streamed live from the Old Vic

Wednesday, 22 July 2020

Andrew Scott will star in a new play streamed live from an empty Old Vic auditorium, for five performances in July and August.

Entitled Three Kings, the scratch performance of Stephen Breresford's piece is directed by Matthew Warchus. The play follows Patrick, a man who reflects on the role of his father in shaping his life following eight years of absence.

Warchus said: "I am hugely grateful to Stephen for writing this play specially for the Old Vic: In Camera series and to Andrew for agreeing to perform it. Their generous support of the Old Vic at this critical time and their spirit of adventure in joining us in this crucial fundraising experiment is enormously appreciated."

Tickets to watch the stream will cost between £10 and £40, with dates from 29 July to 1 August.

Following the performance on 1 August, the venue will stream a conversation between Scott and Dermot O'Leary. General booking opens 22 July.
