Andrew Scott and Stephen Mangan take part in Royal Court quiz

The actors were attending the theatre's annual fundraising event


Actor Stephen Mangan hosted the Royal Court Theatre's annual fundraising quiz last weekend, with guests joining artistic director Vicky Featherstone in the venue's newly refurbished bar.

Sherlock star Andrew Scott led his team to victory on the night, with other people attending the event including actors Romola Garai, Kenneth Cranham, Samantha Spiro and Monica Dolan, and playwrights Dennis Kelly, Rachel De-lahay and Nick Payne.

The quiz, which was written by the Royal Court's literary manager Chris Campbell, included rounds on Shakespeare monologues (in a foreign language) and musical theatre classics, along with a special round written by playwright Simon Stephens.

The funds raised from the quiz will help the Royal Court sustain their process of writer development.
