SRT presented the third and final year of The Bridge Project – Richard III in Singapore, having already presented The Winter’s Tale in 2009 and The Tempest in 2010. All three years have been presented in collaboration with Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay.

Sam Mendes (Road to Perdition and Revolutionary Road) returns to the stage to direct 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, for which they both won BAFTA and Academy Awards.
