ROUGH CUT. NO REPORTER NARRATION. The Old Vic Theatre in London said on Thursday (November 16) it had received 20 separate allegations of inappropriate conduct by actor Kevin Spacey from 20 men who came into contact with him between 1995 and 2013. The theatre was reporting on the findings of an investigation it launched on October 31. Richard Miskella, a lawyer from the firm Lewis Silkin who conducted the investigation on behalf of the Old Vic, said that it had encouraged 14 of the men to talk to the police because of the nature of the allegations but did not say whether any of them had done so. His Los Angeles-based lawyer could not be reached by telephone and did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Reuters. The Old Vic said it had asked Spacey to participate in its investigation but had received no response from him. It said it was not able to say whether the allegations were true or not. Reuters has not been able to independently verify allegations made against Spacey.
