Damien Molony completes the casting of No Man’s Land alongside Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart and Owen Teale in No Man’s Land.

Damien Molony, popular for his roles in BBC’s Being Human and Ripper Street, will play the role of ‘Foster’ in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, completing the cast for the play. Molony joins the previously announced Ian McKellen as ‘Spooner’, Patrick Stewart as ‘Hirst’ and Owen Teale as ‘Briggs’ in Sean Mathias’ production, which will tour venues across the UK from 3 August ahead of a limited run at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre from 8th September 2016.

Most recently seen as Anthony in Channel 4’s Crashing, Damien Molony’s other television roles include Hal in BBC’s Being Human, DC Albert Flight in BBC’s Ripper Street, DS Jack Weston in Channel 5’s Suspects and Robert Putnam in HBO’s The Devil You Know. Notable theatre credits include The Hard Problem and Travelling Light for the National Theatre, If You Don’t Let Us Dream, We Won’t Let You Sleepfor the Royal Court Theatre, ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore for West Yorkshire Playhouse and The Body of an American for The Gate and Royal & Derngate. Film credits include Tiger Raid and Kill Your Friends.

No Man’s Land will begin a UK tour, opening in Sheffield from 3rd August, followed by dates in Newcastle, Brighton and Cardiff. The production will then head into London’s West End where it will play for 14 weeks at Wyndham’s Theatre from 8th September with opening night on 20th September 2016. No Man’s Land was first performed at Wyndham’s Theatre in 1975 with Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, following its premiere at the National Theatre.

Directed by Sean Mathias, this production of No Man’s Land received highly acclaimed reviews at the Cort Theatre in New York whilst in repertory alongside Waiting for Godot, also starring stage and screen friends, McKellen and Stewart and directed by Mathias. The production of Waiting for Godot had transferred from London where it celebrated a sell-out run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, the last time McKellen and Stewart shared a West End stage.

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.

Sean Mathias  says “Directing No Man’s Land in America proved to be one of the greatest joys in my career. Always challenging but bringing immense rewards too. Like a prospector mining for diamond nuggets. I look forward to working on this new production with Ian, Patrick, Owen and Damian and discovering all kinds of unexpected jewels together.

No Man’s Land will have set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis and lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski.

This production of No Man’s Land is produced by Stuart Thompson, Flying Freehold Productions and Playful Productions.
