Administrative / Biographical History

Rourke was asked to direct a gala performance of The Wrong Side of the Rainbow, a dramatic piece based on a Carlton TV television show of the same name. Stories from the streets about London's homeless were dramatised for the stage, and many leading actors and celebrities offered their services free of charge. Actors such as Art Malik, Emilia Fox and Judy Cornwell took part. All proceeds from the event went to a charity that works with young people in crisis.
