Photos: First Look at Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in NO MAN'S LAND

Ian McKellen plays 'Spooner', Patrick Stewart plays 'Hirst', Owen Teale plays 'Briggs' and Damien Molony plays 'Foster' in Sean Mathias' production of Harold Pinter's No Man's Land, which started touring venues across the UK on 3 August prior to a limited engagement at London's Wyndham's Theatre from 8 September with opening night for national press on 20 September. BroadwayWorld has your FIRST LOOK at the production below!

No Man's Land opened at the Lyceum Theatre, Sheffield on 3 August and plays there until 13 August, followed by dates at the Theatre Royal, Newcastle, Theatre Royal, Brighton and New Theatre, Cardiff. The production will then head into London's West End where it will play a limited 14 week engagement at the Wyndham's Theatre from 8 September with opening night for press on 20 September. No Man's Land was first performed at the iconic Wyndham's Theatre in 1975 with Ralph Richardson and John Gielgud, following its premiere at the National Theatre.

Directed by Sean Mathias, this production of No Man's Land received highly acclaimed reviews at the Cort Theatre in New York whilst in repertory alongside Waiting for Godot, also starring stage and screen friends, McKellen and Stewart and directed by Mathias. The production of Waiting for Godot had transferred from London where it celebrated a sell-out run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, the last time McKellen and Stewart shared a West End stage.

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.

No Man's Land has set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis, lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski, sound design and composition by Adam Cork and projection design by Nina Dunn.
