Russell Brand to curate night of monologues at the Old Vic

Russell Brand is curating a night of monologues at London’s Old Vic theatre that will include writing by the likes of Matthew Perry and Lena Dunham.

The event is titled Cracked and will explore mental health and addiction.

Brand, Lena Dunham, Matthew Perry, Scarlett Curtis, Mr Gee, Gabor Maté and Kate Tempest will each pen a monologue for the night, which takes place on 29th September.

Brand will be appearing, with other performers to be announced.

‘For this night, mental illness and addiction will adorn the Old Vic stage, celebrated, explored and attacked through Cracked. I am honoured to have been asked to take over the asylum, albeit for one night only,’ said Russell Brand.
