No Strapline

No Man’s Land

Tuesday 1 October–Saturday 5 October 2019

By Harold Pinter
Directed by Michael Cabot

A chance meeting between two elderly writers in a North London pub leads to an alcohol-fuelled night of reminiscences and verbal sparring.

Hirst, a wealthy recluse, invites Spooner, a down-at-heel poet, to his Hampstead townhouse for a nightcap.  As the shadows lengthen and the whisky flows, their stories become more elaborate and improbable, until the arrival of two younger men forces events to take an unexpected turn.

In his most beguiling and atmospheric play, Pinter interweaves truth, language and memory to create a world of dark comedy and subtle power games.

Originally staged at the Old Vic, London in 1975, Peter Hall’s iconic production of No Man’s Land starred John Gielgud and Ralph Richardson.

Playwright, director, actor, poet and political activist, Harold Pinter wrote 29 plays including The Caretaker, Old Times, Betrayal and The Homecoming.

In 2005, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Please note: Contains very strong language.
Age recommendation 16+
