FAIRFIELD, Conn. (December 2, 2016)After Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart’s Broadway performances they return No Man’s Land to the West End stage. The highly anticipated January 18 presentation from the National Theatre Live in HD is the glorious revival of Harold Pinter’s comic classic, which also stars Owen Teale and Damien Molony.

The play begins 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.

Of their hit Broadway run, Time Out New York wrote, “Harold Pinter’s masterpiece is back in a glowing revival.”

Don’t miss an exclusive broadcast extra following the play – a Q&A session with the cast of No Man’s Land, and director Sean Mathias.
