National Theatre (NT) Live is set to return to Stafford Gatehouse Theatre in the New Year, kicking off with an encore screening of a “landmark production” featuring two of the most recognised faces of British theatre – Sir Patrick Stewart and Sir 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.
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.
Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, don’t miss this glorious revival of Pinter’s comic classic.
In addition to No Man’s Land, the Gatehouse Theatre will be screening a host of other National Theatre productions over the course of 2017.
Set for live broadcast on 2nd February, Lucian Msamati stars as Salieri in Peter Shaffer’s iconic play, Amadeus – a tale of music, power and jealousy. Following this, Gemma Arterton is Joan of Arc in the 16th February screening of the George Bernard Shaw play, Saint Joan. Then on Thursday 9th March, Ruth Wilson will star as the title role in a new version of Henrik Ibsen’s Hedda Gabler. Finally, the last NT Live broadcast of the Spring Summer season will be Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night starring Tamsin Greig as Malvolia.
More NT Live screenings at Stafford Gatehouse Theatre will be announced over the course of the year.
