Andrew Scott is to star in a new play that will be livestreamed to audiences from the empty Old Vic in London.
Three Kings will be directed by Matthew Warchus and will be performed five times from the end of July.
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.
Tickets to watch the stream will cost between £10 and £40, with dates from 29th July to 1st August.
Performances begin at 7.30pm BST with a matinee on 1 August at 3.30pm BST. General booking opens 22nd July.
