National Theatre Live: “No Man’s Land”
Tuesday, Feb. 28, 7 p.m.
One summer 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 turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.
Stage legends Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s “No Man’s Land,” directed by Sean Mathias. Owen Teale and Damien Molony round out the cast of this glorious revival of Pinter’s darkly comic classic. The broadcast includes a post-show interview with the cast and director.
“No Man’s Land” is recommended for ages 15 and up.
