Spacey’s theatre dreams for Middle East

The American Beauty star visited Doha in Qatar last week (ends31Oct10) and insists the trip inspired him to consider a move to the region.

He is currently serving as artistic director at London’s Old Vic theatre but will leave his post in 2015 – and he admits he would love to make a Middle Eastern production his next project.

Spacey tells Britain’s Independent newspaper, “One of the things I want to do, without question, is come to the region and bring an educational ethos, work with emerging talents.

“I don’t want to just go to a city and say, ‘Oh, look at me, I’m here doing a play’. I want to go and create a sense of excitement about theatre, particularly in places where it isn’t on the map in the way of London and New York.”
