National Theatre Live presents: NO MAN’S LAND, play by Harold Pinter, film by: Sean Mathias. Starring: Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen
Following their hit run on Broadway, Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s NO MAN’S LAND, filmed live in from Wyndham’s Theatre, London. 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 home nearby, where the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game.
Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don’t miss this glorious revival of Pinter’s comic classic.
“Two of the greatest actors ever born in one of the greatest plays ever written.” –Time Out

National Theatre Live presents: THE ENTERTAINER, play by John Osborne, film by Rob Ashford. Starring: Kenneth Branagh
Set against the backdrop of post-war Britain, John Osborneʼs modern classic conjures the seedy glamour of the old music halls for an explosive examination of public masks and private torment. Rob Ashford directs Kenneth Branagh as the unforgettable Archie Rice in the final production for Plays at the Garrick season.
