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, broadcast live to cinemas from Wyndham’s Theatre, London.

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. The broadcast will be followed by an exclusive Q&A with the cast and director Sean Mathias.

Irene Black: If only I could have News from You 2nd March
Thursday 2 March, 8pm
 

Times:
Thu 2nd Mar 20:00

Irene’s new work, `If only I could have News from You`, is a biography of her parents, who married in Berlin weeks before the Nazis passed a law banning marriages between Jews and” Aryans”.

The family was persecuted throughout the 1930s, including the loss of her father’s factory and his imprisonment. Her parents fled Germany on the last train from Berlin before war was declared, taking with them over 100 Jewish schoolboys.

The family’s subsequent experiences as refugees in England, and their desperate correspondence with those marooned in Germany, form the basis of this truly historical work.

Irene has translated original family documents, diaries and letters and placed them into historical context in order to tell this remarkable story.
