Final casting for Sean Matthias’ production of No Man’s Land has been confirmed for the UK tour and West End run.
It has been announced that Damien Molony (BBC’s Ripper Street, Being Human) will play Foster, alongside the previously announced Ian McKellen (Spooner), Patrick Stewart (Hirst) and Owen Teale (Briggs) in the production.
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 will open in Sheffield on the 3rd August, before dates in Newcastle, Brighton and Cardiff. The production will then open in London’s West End at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 8th September.
Directed by Sean Matthias, this production of No Man’s Land was originally seen 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 creative team also includes set and costume designs by Stephen Brimson Lewis and lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski.
Talking about No Man’s Land director Sean Matthias said: “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 appear at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 8th September and booking until the 17th December. To book tickets visit: Ticketmaster.co.uk, Discount Theatre.com, Last Minute.com, Theatre Tickets Direct.co.uk, Love Theatre.com, Theatre People.com and UK Tickets.co.uk.
