A host of stars to raise money for the Old Vic



Feature: Lizzie Guilfoyle

FOR THE second year running, a host of stars will take part in the Old Vic's 24 Hour Plays, a fundraising event in which six new plays are written, rehearsed and performed in a single day.

Among those expected to participate on Sunday, June 19, 2005, are Gael Garcia Bernal (pictured), Brooke Shield, Nick Moran, Joseph Fiennes, Rufus Sewell, Saffron Burrows, Damian Lewis, Greg Wise and Gina McKee.

Proceedings do, in fact, begin on the evening of Saturday, June 18, when six writers (among them Roy Williams, Rebecca Lenkiewicz and Steve Waters), six directors and as many as 24 actors gather at the theatre , bringing no more than a prop and costume each.

After working all night and through Sunday, the resulting six, ten-minute plays will be premiered that evening in a gala performance, introduced by the Old Vic's artistic director, Kevin Spacey.

Last year's inaugral event raised £50,000 for the theatre's Old Vic New Voices developmental work.

And this year, the concept is being extended to budding actors, writers and directors in a second event which will take place on July 31.

Ticket prices range from £50 to £500 for a VIP package.
