Kevin Spacey will reprise his sold-out performance

Old Vic artistic director Kevin Spacey will reprise his role in Clarence Darrow for a six week run from 3 March 2015 as part of his final season at the helm of the venue.

Spacey starred in David W Rintels' one-man play about the famous human rights lawyer in a sell-out run last year, which played for just 22 performances.

The show involves Darrow reliving some of his pivotal experiences, including the infamous Scopes ‘Monkey' and ‘Thrill Killers' trials which established his reputation as a courtroom giant and civil rights hero.

The production is directed by Thea Sharrock, and runs at the Old Vic between Daniel Kitson's Tree, which is currently playing, and Maria Friedman's production of High Society which opens on 30 April.
