Richard III

Richard III
Kevin Spacey

Directed by
Sam Mendes

The Bridge Project began in 2009 as a three year project between The Old Vic (London), BAM (USA) and Neal Street. The Bridge Project is hosted for the second time at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus, following The Winter's Tale in 2009.

Sam Mendes returns to the stage to direct Old Vic Artistic Director Kevin Spacey in the title role of Richard III in the final season of The Bridge Project. This transatlantic endeavour reunites them for the first time since American Beauty.  

The full company is drawn from leading American and British actors and embarks on an international tour. 

Sam Mendes was founder and Artistic Director of the Donmar Warehouse for a decade and has directed theatre at the RSC, National Theatre, plus in the West End and on Broadway. His film credits include Road to Perdition and Revolutionary Road.

Old Vic Artistic Director Kevin Spacey has most recently appeared in Inherit the Wind, Speed-the-Plow, A Moon for the Misbegotten and Richard II at The Old Vic.
