American actor Kevin Spacey, who has resided for the past decade in London as artistic director of the Old Vic theatre, held a premiere there for his latest film 'Now: In the Wings on a World Stage' - a movie which combines cinema with his love of theatre.
The documentary follows Spacey and the other actors and crew on The Bridge Project production of Shakespeare's Richard III, as it begins a ten month tour around the world.
SOUNDBITE: Kevin Spacey saying (English):
"For us to be able to peel the onion back a little bit and show people what it's like to put on a play and what actors go through, what it's like for an entire crew and to do that on really almost like a travelog of being able to go as far as Beijing, or Doha, Singapore, Sydney, Australia as well as the United States, I just felt it was a great chance to have a little peek about what goes on."
The adaptation of the 400-year-old play will be available to download from the film's official site on June 10.
