Damien Molony joins cast of West End No Man's Land
It has been announced that Damien Molony will join the previously announced Owen Teale, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in the upcoming revival of Harold Pinter's No Man's Land, which will run at the Wyndham's theatre in London's West End from 8 September 2016 to 17 December 2016, with an official opening on 20 September 2016.
The production originally ran at the Cort Theatre on Broadway where it played in rep with Waiting for Godot, also directed by Sean Mathias. The play was last seen in the West End in 2008 in a production which starred Michael Gambon.
"Do the two writers, Hirst and Spooner really know each other, or are they performing an elaborate charade? The ambiguity intensifies with the arrival of two other men. Do all four inhabit a no-man's-land between the present and time remembered, between reality and fantasy? One summer's evening, two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, 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."
This new production will feature set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis, with lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski. It is produced in the West End by Stuart Thompson, Flying Freehold Productions and Playful Productions, with further cast and creative team to be announced.
Damien Molony was most recently seen on TV in Channel 4's 'Crashing'. His other television roles include BBC's 'Being Human', 'Ripper Street' and HBO's 'The Devil You Know'. His stage credits include 'The Hard Problem' and 'Travelling Light' for the National Theatre and 'If You Don't Let Us Dream, We Won't Let You Sleep' for the Royal Court Theatre.
