Two of Britain’s finest stage and screen stars Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart, star in a live screening of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land at Trinity Arts Centre in Gainsborough tonight (Thursday).

Showing as part of the National Theatre Live series, the performance will screened live from London’s Wyndham Theatre.

The London run sees the two acting knights return to the West End stage following their hit run on Broadway.

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.

Events are then further complicated by the return home of two sinister younger men.

Also starring Owen Teale and Damien Molony, this broadcast of Pinter’s comic classic will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias.

The screening starts at 7pm and tickets are £12 and £10 from the box office on 01427 676655 or online at www.purchase.tickets.com/buy/TicketPurchase
