ian-mckellen-as-spoonerpatrick-stewart-as-hirst-in-no-mans-land-credit-johan-persson-jpgSean Mathias’ production of Harold Pinter’s NO MAN’S LAND, will be broadcast internationally on 15 December to cinemas in over 55 countries including the UK, Europe, the USA, Canada, Japan, South America and Russia. Full information on the National Theatre Live screenings can be found at www.ntlive.com.

Winner of the 2016 Evening Standard Award for Best Revival, NO MAN’S LAND is currently playing at Wyndham’s Theatre in London’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.

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!”

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 plays at the Wyndham’s Theatre until Saturday 17 December 2016. Tickets
