The star-studded Celebrity Gala is a yearly fund-raiser and has become one of the highlights of The Old Vic’s season. It provides a one-off evening never to be seen again and a unique opportunity to see work by some of the best international actors, writers and directors. The team comes together to create, rehearse and perform six short plays, all within an exhilarating rollercoaster ride of just 24 short hours, which begins on the evening of Saturday 10 November and ends in the performance of completely original theatre to a full house on Sunday 11 November at 7.30pm. The night finishes with The 25th Hour – a glittering post-show party at Plaza on the River.
