No Man's Land starring Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen opens in London
The Pinter revival opens this week in London.
A revival of Harold Pinter's No Man's Land starring Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart opens this week in the West End following a successful UK tour. The production, which is directed by Sean Mathias, is currently in previews at the Wyndham's Theatre and opens officially to the press on Tuesday 20 September 2016.
"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."
McKellen and Stewart are joined in the production by Owen Teale and Damien Molony. Set and costume design is by Stephen Brimson Lewis, with lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski.
This revival of No Man's Land originally ran at the Cort Theatre on Broadway where it played in rep with Beckett's Waiting for Godot, also directed by Mathias.
The UK tour has delighted audiences in Sheffield, Brighton, Newcastle and Cardiff, before beginning performances at the Wyndham's on 8 September 2016.
No Man's Land runs at the Wyndham's Theatre until 17 December 2016.
