On Sunday 21st November 2010 Richard appeared at The Old Vic's 24 hour plays gala in a play entitled 'The Third Wish', written by Stephen Beresford and directed by Charlotte Westenra. Richard's co-stars were Miranda Raison, Niamh Cusack and Debbie Chazen. In the event's programme, Richard said that he was dedicating the evening to the late Betty Pattison who was the founder of Pattison college in Coventry, which Richard attended aged 14 - 17 (see third scan below).
