The Old Vic has announced that the one, the only Andrew Scott will be performing live and beamed into homes around the world in the next installment of the Old Vic: In Camera series.

The Sherlock and Fleabag star and Olivier Award nominee will perform the world premiere of Three Kings, a brand new play by Stephen Beresford (The Last of the Haussmans, Pride), written for Andrew Scott and directed by Old Vic artistic director, Matthew Warchus.

The scratch performance will be live on the Old Vic stage to an empty auditorium for five performances only from 29 July – 1 August. Tickets will cost from £10 – £40, and while each ‘seat’ will offer the same streamed view, the Old Vic are asking their audience to give what they can to help support their theatre.

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.


 Matthew Warchus, Artistic Director, 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.’

We are so sorry that in these testing and difficult times you are not able to enjoy the show you have booked for and hope the following helps clarify next steps in respect of your tickets .

There is nothing that you need to do if your performance has been cancelled, but we do ask for your patience.

If you have booked via a ticket agent they will also be in contact with you directly.

We are processing in strict date order of performance, so you are likely to be contacted after the date you were due to go to the theatre. However, we want to reassure you that you will be contacted, and your order will be processed, but please do bear with us.

We’d like to thank everyone who has been patient and kind in dealing with their ticket providers so far and we are sorry that we cannot process your order as quickly as we would like.

Please be reassured that if we have to cancel future performances you will be directly contacted by your theatre or ticket provider.
