Sushi founder Simon Woodroffe and stage star Mark Rylance have given their support to a scheme which uses theatre and drama to help people struggling with addiction.The Outside Edge charity is putting on its first commercial show at the newly refurbished Hoxton Hall next month. If successful they hope to transfer to the West End.The charity was set up by former addict Phil Fox, who passed away last year, and is also supported by actors Gary Oldman and Pierce Brosnan.Rockston Stories is “an addictive cabaret” which explores the devastating effects of substance abuse. Rylance is its associate director.Page, 71, said: “I was so impressed with the work they do. Everybody I think has been touched by addiction. This charity provides a great support system and gives these people purpose and focus.”Woodroffe, 63, was arrested for drugs offences at 17 and overcame a bout of depression at 40. He said: “Everybody has their demons in life. The people involved with Outside Edge get to work with professional actors ... It builds their self-esteem. We have various fundraising events, but if we could make this show and future shows sustainable it would be fantastic.”http://www.standard.co.uk/showbiz/celebrity-news/led-zeppelin-guitarist-jimmy-page-joins-yo-sushi-founder-to-back-addictive-cabaret-for-charity-a2956881.html Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
