Owen Teale joins McKellen and Stewart in No Man's Land
It has been announced that Owen Teale will join 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.
Owen Teale is popularly known for playing Ser Alliser Thorne in HBO's Game of Thrones. He won the 1997 Tony Award for Best Actor in a Featured Role in a Play for his portrayal of Torvald in 'A Doll's House', for which he was also nominated for an Olivier Award. Other theatre credits include 'Dance of Death' (also alongside Ian McKellen and directed by Sean Mathias), 'Ivanov' at the National Theatre, 'Julius Caesar', 'King Lear' and 'Henry IV' for the RSC.
