Owen Teale Will Explore NO MAN'S LAND Opposite Ian McKellen & Patrick Stewart in London

Tony-winning actor Owen Teale will venture into Harold Pinter's NO MAN'S LAND opposite Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart this Autumn, according to The Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye. The GAME OF THRONES actor will take on the role of Briggs.

As previously reported, performances will begin in London on September 8, 2016, following an August UK tour with stops in Sheffield, Brighton, Newcastle and Cardiff.

Stewart and McKellen previously brought the play to Broadway in 2013 in rep with Samuel Beckett's WAITING FOR GODOT.

The NO MAN'S LAND official description reads: "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 house nearby. As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men."

OWEN TEALE currently plays Alliser Thorne on Game of Thrones. On stage he has appeared in many West End and Broadway productions, winning a Tony Award in 1997 for his performance as Torvald opposite Janet McTeer in Ibsen'sA Doll's House, a part for which he also won a Laurence Olivier Award nomination. He has performed with the Royal Shakespeare Company and the National Theatre of Great Britain, among many others.

McKellen, well known for his roles in The Lord of the Rings trilogy and The Hobbit films, has also appeared on Broadway in Dance of Death, Ian McKellen: A Knight Out at the Lyceum, Wild Honey, Ian McKellen: Acting Shakespeare, Amadeus -- which won him a Tony in 1981 -- and The Promise. In the West End, McKellen has starred in A Scent of Flowers, Richard II, Edward II, Macbeth, Othello, King Lear, The Seagull, The Tempest and many more productions. The actor will soon take on 'Cogsworth' in Disney's live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast and currently stars in the TV series Vicious. Next month, he is set to appear at the RSC in Stratford upon Avon to celebrate the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death.

Tony nominee Stewart, known to many as Star Trek's 'Captain Jean-Luc Picard', has also graced the New York stage in A Life in the Theatre, Macbeth, The Caretaker, A Christmas Carol, The Ride Down Mt. Morgan, The Tempest, A Christmas Carol and A Midsummer Night's Dream. After a start with the RSC, Stewart went on to appear in West End productions of Antony and Cleopatra, Macbeth, Hamlet and more. He currently appears in the TV series Blunt Talk.
