    Ian McKellen On Stage: With Tolkien, Shakespeare, Others and YOU
    Harold Pinter Theatre
    Friday Matinee

    Directed by Sean Mathias

    “Taking this new Show to 80+ theatres around the country, has been a joyful birthday present to myself.  I’ve played mainly in theatres I knew well as a young theatregoer and actor. On my birthday, I was in Bolton Town Hall where my dad used to work. It began last February with 15 theatres in Greater London and will end in Orkney. 

    Soon I will be back in London, for a limited season in the West End, raising much-needed funds for theatre charities. For each performance at the Harold Pinter Theatre, I’m glad that there will be 80 tickets at just £10. 

    As for the show? Ask someone who’s seen it. Come and find out.”
