NO MAN'S LAND recently completed a critically acclaimed run at Berkeley Repertory Theatre this past August.
Ian McKellen won the Tony Award for his performance in Amadeus in 1981. Patrick Stewart first appeared on Broadway in Peter Brook's production of Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream in 1971 and won the Drama Desk Award for A Christmas Carol in 1992. McKellenand Stewart have appeared together on stage twice before - in the 2009 West End production of Waiting for Godot and in the 1977 premiere of Tom Stoppard's Every Good Boy Deserves Favour. Billy Crudup, won a Tony Award for The Coast of Utopia in 2007. Shuler Hensley won a Tony Award for Oklahoma! in 2002. Sean Mathias, Tony nominated for his direction of Indiscretions, directed Billy Crudup in The Elephant Man in 2002.
In NO MAN'S LAND, two elderly writers, having met in a London pub, continue drinking and talking into the night. All might be well, until the return home of two younger men. Their relationships are exposed, with menace and hilarity, in one of Pinter's most entertaining plays.
In WAITING FOR GODOT, two wanderers wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travelers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous.
Alternating in the role of 'The Boy' in WAITING FOR GODOT are Colin Critchley and Aidan Gemme.
Designs for the productions include sets and costumes by Stephen Brimson Lewis (twice Tony-nominated for Indiscretions), lighting by PeterKaczorowski (a Tony Award winner for Contact and The Producers) sound and music by Rob Milburn and Michael Bodeen (Breakfast At Tiffany's), projections by Zachary Borovay (Ann) and hair and make-up by Tom Watson (The Assembled Parties).
