Winner of the 2016 Evening Standard Award for Best Revival, No Man’s Land is currently playing at Wyndham’s Theatre in London Theatre‘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. No Man’s Land was first performed at the iconic Wyndham’s Theatre in 1975 with Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, following its premiere at the National Theatre.

Prior to the West End, this production played to 100% capacity on tour throughout the UK, starting at the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield on 3rd August before dates at Theatre Royal, Newcastle, Theatre Royal, Brighton and New Theatre, Cardiff.

Directed by Sean Mathias, 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.

Patrick Stewart (Hirst) says: “No Man’s Land is a masterpiece of 20th Century British Theatre and Ian, Damian, Owen and I love it deeply. It has been a joy to play it first in Berkeley, California, then on Broadway, on tour in the UK and now in London. What a climax to have it in cinemas across the UK and in more than 50 countries around the world. Don’t miss it.

Ian McKellen (Spooner) says: “I am so pleased that audiences who could not get a ticket for No Man’s Land can now see, all over the world, a live performance in their local cinema. Don’t miss it!

National Theatre Live: No Man’s Land Trailer

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 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.

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