Moving Stories at Theatre Royal Haymarket Announcement | LittleEllieMae

Mel Giedroyc will host the all-star cast of ‘Moving Stories’ at the Theatre Royal Haymarket on 26th February to raise funds for the United Nations Refugee Agency (UNHCR).

Moving Stories is curated by actress Emma Manton (RSC Love’s Labour’s Lost & Much Ado About Nothing) in response to the current global refugee crisis and was first performed at the National Theatre in 2016.

Emma Manton comments on the project, "I have been blown away by the response of the theatrical community to this event. All the writers and performers have offered their services for free to show support for refugees around the world. It’s very humbling.”

Some of the UK’s finest writers have written and donated material for the event, including Richard Bean, David Edgar, Phil Porter, Michelle Terry and Jenifer Toksvig. The cast will include Adjoa Andoh (Doctor Who), Edward Bennett (RSC), James Bolam (New Tricks), Anna-Jane Casey (Mack and Mabel), Natalie Casey (Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps), Lisa Dillon (RSC), Ray Fearon (Coronation Street), Rufus Hound (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels), Evelyn Hoskins (Sound of Music Live), Andy Nyman (Hangmen), Caroline Sheen (Mary Poppins) and Zubin Varla (Dara). All appearances subject to availability.

All profits from the performance will be donated to the UNHCR to provide much needed support and assistance to refugees caught up in the current global refugee crisis – the most overwhelming since the Second World War. 

Catch this wonderful event, showcasing exciting theatre pieces as well as supporting the UN Refugee Agency charity at the Theatre Royal Haymarket at 4pm on 26th February. Tickets, priced from £15, are available from the Theatre Royal Haymarket box office- call 020 7930 8800 or visit
