In Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land, according to press notes, "two elderly writers, having met in a London pub, continue drinking and talking into the night. All might be well, until the return home of two younger men. Their relationships are exposed, with menace and hilarity, in one of Pinter's most entertaining plays."
In Waiting for Godot, "two wanderers wait by a lonely tree, to meet up with Mr. Godot, who they hope will change their lives for the better. Instead, another couple of eccentric travellers arrive, one man on the end of the other's rope. The results are both funny and dangerous."
Waiting for Godot played a critically acclaimed, sold-out run in London’s West End in 2009 with McKellen and Stewart.
No Man's Land played a recent, pre-Broadway engagement at Berkeley Repertory Theatre.
No Man’s Land and Waiting for Godot are being produced on Broadway by Stuart Thompson and NOMANGO Productions. NOMANGO Productions is a consortium of Ian McKellen, Patrick Stewart, Sean Mathias and a group of investors.
