Andrew Scott to star in live-streamed play Three Kings at the Old Vic
The new play by Stephen Beresford is part of the theatre's In Camera series.
UPDATE: This production has been delayed, as Andrew Scott recovered from surgery. According to the theatre, Scott's condition is not Covid-19 related and is not serious. New dates for the production will be announced soon.
Andrew Scott is taking the stage in lockdown. The actor, known worldwide for his work in Fleabag season 2 and on BBC's Sherlock, will star in the new play Three Kings for five performances 29 July - 1 August. The production, which will be live-streamed as part of the Old Vic's In Camera series, will be staged by the theatre's artistic director Matthew Warchus and performed live via Zoom.
In the play, Scott will play Patrick, a man grappling with his father's life as he remembers the "Three Kings" challenge his father gave to him when he was young. The play is the second of the Old Vic's lockdown productions, following Matt Smith and Claire Foy in a re-staged production of Lungs, which the actors performed at the theater in late 2019. The performances are broadcast live and available to a select amount of people over Zoom.
In May, Scott offered a free stream of his filmed version of Simon Stephens's one-man play Sea Wall. The devastating play was written for Scott, who first performed the show at the Bush Theatre in 2012. Scott returned to the role in 2018 for the Old Vic's 200th birthday celebration.
A limited number of tickets to Three Kings will be available for each performance. To get tickets to the show, visit The Old Vic's website.
