Harold Pinter revival breaks capacity records.
It has been announced that Sean Mathias’ award-winning production of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will be broadcast in cinemas internationally on 15 December via National Theatre Live.
The production recently broke Delfont Mackintosh's record for a play with highest opening advance and highest (100%) attendance for 14 week season. It has been seen by over 90,000 people, including 100% capacity houses in Sheffield, Newcastle, Brighton and Cardiff.
No Man's Land features Ian McKellen as ‘Spooner’, Patrick Stewart as ‘Hirst’, Owen Teale as ‘Briggs’ and Damien Molony as ‘Foster’ and is directed by Sean Mathias. It will be broadcast internationally on 15 December to cinemas in over 55 countries including the UK, Europe, the USA, Canada, Japan, South America and Russia in collaboration with National Theatre Live.
The production opened at the Wyndham's Theatre on 20 September 2016, where it is booking to 17 December 2016. It opened to excellent reviews and recently won the Evening Standard Award for Best Revival.
"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."
Tickets to see the run live at the Wyndham's Theatre remain on sale.
