Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Billy Crudup, and Shuler Hensley star in one of Harold Pinter’s most entertaining plays. Two elderly writers meet in a London pub. Do they really know each other…or are they performing an elaborate charade?
Two elderly writers, Hirst (Patrick Stewart) and Spooner (Ian McKellen), meet in a London pub, drinking and talking into the night. We wonder if they really know each other…or are they performing an elaborate charade? The ambiguity -- and the comedy -- intensify with the arrival of two other men, Briggs (Shuler Hensley) and Foster (Billy Crudup). Their relationships are exposed, with menace and hilarity. Do all four inhabit a no-man's-land between the present and time remembered, between reality and fantasy? Performed in repertory with Waiting for Godot.
No Man’s Land was first staged in London in 1975 and transferred to Broadway the following year. A previous Broadway revival followed in 1994. This production was originally staged at California’s Berkeley Rep in August, 2013.
