Spacey shares stories for charity

Published September 10, 2010

Old Vic Artistic Director and Hollywood actor Kevin Spacey is to share tales from his eclectic career and intriguing life as part of a ‘Special Audience with’ event in aid of Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.

The star of films including The Usual Suspects, American Beauty and Superman Returns, who usually shies away from sharing his life via the press, will open up on the Criterion stage on 3 October as part of this one-off fundraising event.

Hosted by the Chairman of Fundraising for Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, Alistair Campbell, and literary agent and leukaemia survivor Ed Victor, the evening of entertainment will offer audience members a rare chance to put questions to Spacey themselves.

Seats for this rare event are available at £25, £50 and £60, or at £120 including an exclusive champagne reception. They can be purchased by visiting www.beatbloodcancers.org/kevinspacey or by calling Sophie on 020 7685 1022.

The Special Audience with Kevin Spacey may be the only chance London theatregoers have to see the actor on stage this year, as he is currently not scheduled to appear in either of the Old Vic’s autumn/winter shows. Design For Living, which opens next week, stars Lisa Dillon, Tom Burke and Andrew Scott, while Dillon also appears in A Flea In Her Ear opposite Tom Hollander, which opens at the Waterloo venue in December.
