Actress Vanessa Redgrave has rescheduled an appearance in a charity theatre show following the death of her daughter, Natasha Richardson.

The 72-year-old actress was due to star in a performance of The Year of Magical Thinking at New York’s Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine on 27 April to raise funds for UNICEF and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency, with proceeds expected to help children effected by warfare in Gaza and southern Israel. However, the performance has now been pushed back to October 26 to give Redgrave time to grieve.

Redgrave was nominated for a Tony Award for her role in “The Year of Magical Thinking” – which is based on Joan Didion’s book of that name and is about her efforts to cope with the death of her husband and daughter – in 2007.
