National Theatre: No Man’s Land
Jan 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Run Time: 2 hrs 30 mins (including 20-min intermission)

Appropriate for audiences 12 years old and up.

Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, recorded at Wyndham’s Theatre, London.

One summer’s evening, two aging 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.
