Ac­tor’s gift to the arts

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - NEWS -

Ac­claimed ac­tor Sir Ian Mckellen plans to do­nate all the pro­ceeds from his 80th birth­day solo show at next year’s Ed­in­burgh In­ter­na­tional Fes­ti­val to lo­cal youth the­atre.

Funds from his show, Ian Mckellen On Stage, which is on for four days at the Assem­bly Hall and fea­tures many of the char­ac­ters he has played over the years, will pay for re­fur­bish­ment of the drama stu­dio at Leith Acad­emy and sup­port a bur­sary for an Ed­in­burgh stu­dent to study in the per­form­ing arts.
