Audiences that flocked to see Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan in Waiting For Godot at the Theatre Royal Haymarket in 2009/2010 will be happy to know that the duo is set to return to the West End in 2016 for No Man’s Land, which also reunites them with director Sean Mathias.
The production has already impressed the crowds on Broadway and comes to the West End to entertain British fans in the home of British theatre as we follow the old writers of the story in a gripping and memorable production.
The two writers go by the names of Hirst (Stewart) and Spooner (McKellen) and we follow them as they embark upon a drinking bender, beginning at a pub in Hampstead and continuing at Hirst’s house. But this isn’t just a story of drunkenness, it is also an exploration of these two characters and their one-upmanship, as well as their dealings with two new arrivals.
Penned by Harold Pinter, No Man’s Land is a classic British play and its arrival at the Wyndham’s Theatre is a homecoming as this is the location in which it was first seen in the West End in 1975 (after appearances at non-West End venues in the capital). It has since been seen around the world and remains a favourite of Pinter fans.
And as this production stars Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen fans will be flocking to see it. The actors are best known for their film work and appeared alongside one another in the hit X-Men series of films as Professor X and Magneto respectively. Stewart has also performed in Star Trek: The Next Generation, American Dad and more. McKellen, meanwhile, has also appeared in the Lord Of The Rings trilogy and its prequel Hobbit trilogy as wizard Gandalf and more recently played Sherlock Holmes in Mr Holmes.
On the stage they have also accumulated plenty of credits, with Stewart also appearing in Hamlet for the Royal Shakespeare Company and McKellen appearing in The Seagull at the New London theatre.
But this year audiences can catch them in No Man’s Land as it plays at the Wyndham’s Theatre from Tuesday 20th September 2016 (previews from Thursday 8th September 2016).
