Welsh actor Rhys Ifans is set to go solo in a one-man play about the 'Occupy' protests in London in 2011. The Notting Hill star will perform in Protest Song, a piece written by Tim Price which focuses on the anti-corporate greed campaigns which took over the area surrounding London's iconic St. Paul's Cathedral for several months. Ifans will play a homeless man who awakes to find himself surrounded by demonstrators. The play will run from 16 December (13) to 11 January (14). Radiohead's Thom Yorke, Massive Attack and Rage Against The Machine star Tom Morello were among the stars who were outspoken in their support for the rallies, which took place in major cities around the world.
