Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the UK stage in Sean Mathias’ acclaimed production of No Man’s Land, one of the most popular plays by Harold Pinter.
Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart last appeared on the London stage, seven years go when they starred in Waiting for Godot and they now take on another modern classic with a revival of No Man’s Land by Harold Pinter.
The production will begin with a short tour visiting Sheffield, Newcastle, Brighton and Cardiff. No Man’s Land will play at the Wyndham’s theatre in London in September.
Stewart saw the original production of No Man’s Land, starring Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud in the 1970s and promised himself he would play one of the main characters.
The play is centred around two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner who meet in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst’s stately house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.
