Advocates: Kevin Spacey

Kevin Spacey is an actor and director, who was the Artistic Director of the Old Vic; he was responsible for commissioning The Old Vic's 2008 award-winning revival of Alan Ayckbourn's The Norman Conquests.


"When I heard about the Tony Award, I partly felt Alan Ayckbourn had been given his due as a playwright. His reputation has suffered from the snobbery of others. Because he writes comedies, there is the incorrect assumption that he is not part of the same canon as Beckett or Chekhov or Mamet, writers to whom he is closer to in terms of the genius with which he weaves webs between his characters."
