The 24 Hour Plays Celebrity Gala is an annual fundraiser in aid of Old Vic New Voices, a department of the Old Vic dedicated to working with young people, developing emerging talent and building new audiences.

Since 2004 each year a gaggle of well known actors, playwrights and directors get together for this one-off event in which six plays are created, written, rehearsed and performed within 24 hours. This year’s 24 Hour Plays Celebrity Gala is hosted by TV and radio presenter Johnny Vaughan and actor/writer James Corden (Gavin And Stacey) and sees a host of famous names line up to take on the challenge. 

Actors already confirmed as taking part include Jenny Agutter, Hugh Bonneville, Hamish Clark, Julia Davis, Martin Freeman, Henry Goodman, Ilan Goodman, Josh Hartnett, David Harewood, Jessica Hynes, Jenny Jules, Dervla Kirwan, Martina Laird, Sally Phillips, Tim Pigott-Smith, Michelle Ryan and Lia Williams. 

On the creative side, directors Tamara Harvey, Clare Lizzimore, Anna Mackmin, Jonathan Munby, Josie Rourke team up with writers Amelia Bullmore, Moira Buffini, Maurice Gran and Laurence Marks. Further names are to be announced.
