In a press statement, Kevin Spacey, artistic director of the Old Vic, which is being provided free of charge to host the reading, commented, "Theatre has a crucial role to play in our world, to allow people to advance and discuss ideas, confront issues and communicate across cultural boundaries. This is an important piece that deserves to be heard and we are pleased to be providing an opportunity for audiences to connect with its message."
It will be directed by Patricia Mcgregor, and co-presented by the New York based organization, Fuel | We Power Change, and The Kaleidoscope Trust, a UK charity working internationally to end the persecution of LGBT communities.
Lance Price, executive director of the Kaleidoscope Trust, commented, "This play is not only dramatic in its content, but also in its message. We are honoured to be a presenting partner of this important event. We thank The Old Vic for supporting Judy's play, and for allowing the simple truth, that it should never be a crime to be gay, to be spread further."
