Andrew Scott will return to The Old Vic following his critically acclaimed performances in Sea Wall and Present Laughter for the second instalment of the Old Vic: In Camera live streamed series.
The world premiere of Three Kings, a brand new play by Stephen Beresford, will be performed live from The Old Vic stage across five live streams from Wed 29 Jul–Sat 01 Aug.
When Patrick is eight years old his absent father returns unexpectedly and in a brief but memorable encounter, sets him the challenge of ‘The Three Kings’. Years later – recalling that meeting, and the revelations that followed – Patrick traces the events of his father’s life – and takes us on a journey of grandiose plans, aching disappointments and audacious self delusion.
By turns, hilarious and heartbreaking, Three Kings is about fathers and sons, the gifts and burdens of inheritance, and the unfathomable puzzle of human relationships.
The first Old Vic: In Camera saw Matt Smith and Clare Foy return to the Old Vic stage for Duncan Macmillan’s Lungs.
Tickets for Old Vic: In Camera will go on priority sale from 12pm BST today ahead of general sale at 10am BST on Wed 22 Jul. All performances will be captioned and audio described and available globally.
