and also Richard was spotted by an audience member at the Young Vic the other day (Twitter), he was also in the audience of the play " A View From The Bridge". No pics of Richard, seems he was there to see the play. Not my story really to share, but just sharing he was seen and was there.
You might recognize one of the actors starring in this play at the Young Vic. That's Nicola Walker, also known to us Spooks fans as Ruth, and one of Richard's colleagues on that show.
A View from the Bridge is also an Arthur Miller play. Below is a brief description from Wikipedia:
"The play is set in 1950s America, in an Italian American neighborhood near the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. It employs a chorus and narrator in the character of Alfieri. Eddie, the tragic protagonist, has an improper love of, and almost obsession with, Catherine. Miller's interest in writing about the world of the New York docks originated with an unproduced screenplay that he developed with Elia Kazan in the early 1950s (entitled The Hook) that addressed corruption on the Brooklyn docks (Kazan would go on to direct On the Waterfront, which tackled the same subject). Miller said that he heard the basic account that developed into the plot of A View from the Bridge from a lawyer who worked with longshoremen, who related it to him as a true story."
