Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Owen Teale and Damien Molony will be performing in Sean Mathias’ production of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, which 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.
Here is the description of No Man’s Land story from an official press release: “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.”
No Man’s Land is currently playing at Wyndham’s Theatre in London’s West End where it will complete its limited 14 week engagement on 17 December having been seen by over 90,000 people, selling to 100% capacity every night. It was first performed at there in 1975 with Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, following its premiere at the National Theatre.
This production of No Man’s Land is produced by Stuart Thompson Productions and Playful Productions. It has set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design and composition by Adam Cork and projection design by Nina Dunn.
