No Man’s Land
Legends of stage and screen Patrick Stewart (X-Men) and Sir Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings) return to the West End in Harold Pinter’s comic tour de force No Man’s Land.
First produced over forty years ago, No Man’s Land unites two ageing writers Hirst and Spooner for one night of hard drinking and fast talking. As the alcohol continues to flow and the stories continue to pile up, Hirst and Spooner’s animated discussion takes a darker turn and two menacing younger men turn up to join them.
Following a sold-out run on Broadway, Sean Mathias’ celebrated revival honours Pinter’s unflinching gaze into the void. No Man’s Land delves deep into the Nobel laureate’s favourite themes, such as the frailty of memory and the perennial struggle that is human interaction, but remains vibrant, rich and comic. While other playwrights typically wrestle with these themes in sombre, sententious tones, Pinter’s absurdist masterpiece is funny and clear and is performed to perfection by Stewart and McKellen in this latest, striking production.
Playing at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre from September, No Man’s Land brings together two superstar actors in one extraordinary play. Don’t miss out, book your tickets today.
