Veterans of stage and screen in Pinter play


Best-known to cinema-goers as Professor Charles Xavier and Magneto from the X-Men, veteran double act Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellen team up on stage in No Man's Land.

Following a successful run on Broadway, and a tour of UK theatres, Harold Pinter's tragi-comic play has now reached the West End, and fans world-wide will also have the chance to see the performance on the big screen via National Theatre Live.

Stewart and McKellen play two ageing writers, Hirst and Spooner, who meet one evening in a Hampstead pub and carry on drinking into the night at Hirst's stately home nearby. As the pair become more and more drunk, their stories become increasingly unbelievable, and the conversation turns from a battle of wits into a power struggle. The plot thickens with the arrival of two younger men (Owen Teale as Briggs and Damien Molony as Foster) and the action begins to take on a more sinister turn.

The play is directed by Sean Mathias and features set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis and lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski.

The NT Live broadcast on 15 December will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director. Look out for encore screenings on additional dates – check your local cinema for details.

No Man's Land is showing at Wyndhams Theatre, Charing Cross Road, until 17 December. Monday to Saturday performances are at 7.30pm, with Wednesday and Saturday matinees at 2.30pm. Tickets are priced £10 - £75.
