Damian and Helen Onstage for Children’s Charity
by Stephen Einhorn Blog | October, 2010
At the beginning of October, the children’s charity Scene & Heard played host to a star studded event held at the 20th Century Theatre in Notting Hill. The evening included champagne, canapés, the performance of plays written by Scene & Heard’s child playwrights, and an auction.
Famous faces included patrons Damian Lewis (the host), Helen McCrory, Tim Pigott-Smith, Tom Goodman- Hill, Twiggy Lawson and Jonathon Pryce.
Scene & Heard is a unique mentoring project that partners the inner-city children of Somers Town, London with volunteer theatre professionals. They give children intensive, one-to-one adult attention, enabling them to write plays which are then performed by professional actors. For many years, this vibrant charity has created astonishing and extraordinary theatre.
