'The Frank Britton Recovery Fund' Launches to Support D.C. Actor After Attack

DC actor Frank Britton was attacked and robbed in the early morning hours of May 27. His right cheek was shattered and he sustained other abrasions on the back of his head and body. He was admitted to Holy Cross Hospital, where he underwent an initial surgery on his face on May 28.

As of today, May 29, Frank has been discharged and is recuperating at home until his next surgery.

Frank does not have health insurance. A fund has been started to raise money for his medical expenses. If you'd like to contribute, please donate to his GoFundMe site. Any and all donations for his recovery are gratefully accepted.

According to previous reports, Britton took his opening night bow for the Forum Theatre's current production of "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot." After socializing in the lobby with fellow cast and crew members, Britton began to make his way home shortly after two o'clock in the morning. Britton was "literally feet away from a cab" when a group of young men began to surround him, according to the Washington City Paper. Britton said: "Before I knew it I was sucker-punched, hit in the head, hit three or four times."
