Playing a limited 14 week engagement at the Wyndham’s Theatre from the 8th September until the 17th December, No Man’s Land was first performed at the theatre in 1975 with Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, following its premiere at the National Theatre.

This production, directed by Sean Matthias received highly acclaimed reviews when it ran 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.

Waiting for Godot had transferred to New York, following a successful run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket and was the last time that McKellen and Stewart appeared on stage together.

Set on a summer’s evening, two friends meet in a Hampstead pub and continue to drink as the night goes on. As the pair become increasingly inebriated and their stories become more exaggerated and unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a power game, complicated further by the arrival of two sinister younger men.

The production features set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design and composition byAdam Cork and projection design by Nina Dunn.

No Man’s Land runs at Wyndham’s theatre from the 8th September 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
