The Hamlet actor will tread the boards in the short monologue once again, this time in celebration of The Old Vic’s 200th birthday.
Scott, 41, said: “Sea Wall, to my mind, is a stunning piece of writing, and the idea of performing Simon’s beautiful play in this most magical of theatres makes me really happy.”
He added: “I hope The Old Vic audiences will love the play as much as I do.”
Sea Wall will run at The Old Vic in London from June 18 until June 30.
