The Old Vic theatre has been accused of ‘pleading ignorance’ to inappropriate sexual behaviour by Kevin Spacey during his 11-year reign as its artistic director.

A number of actors and staff members claim the renowned theatre in London ‘turned a blind eye’ to allegations of groping and sordid behaviour by the Hollywood actor.

This comes after three actors came forward claiming they were sexually assaulted by the star while he was artistic director at The Old Vic.

A former employee told the Guardian: ‘We were all involved in keeping it quiet. I witnessed him groping men many times in all sorts of different situations’

Meanwhile people who worked at the theatre while Spacey was there as its chief have lifted the lid on his sordid aftershow parties in a series of interviews exclusive to MailOnline.

His former colleagues including actors and a stage manager told MailOnline how he would pick a young man he liked the look of.

A former stage manager at the Old Vic, who spoke to MailOnline on condition of anonymity, worked for 40 years in the industry and his time overlapped with Spacey’s at the capital city venue.

He said: ‘In the West End, everybody knew. You hear people coming out saying it’s a total shock and it really cheeses me off.
