Game Of Thrones star Owen Teale will join Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart in the forthcoming West End production of No Man’s Land.
The critically acclaimed trio will appear in Harold Pinter’s classic at the Wyndham’s Theatre from 8 September to 17 December following a UK tour.
McKellen and Stewart will reprise their roles of Spooner and Hirst respectively following Sean Mathias’ production’s 2013 debut at the Cort Theater in New York, with Teale in the role of Briggs.
Pinter’s tale tells the story of two ageing writers who 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.
Teale is a Tony Award winner and Olivier Award nominated actor following his critically acclaimed turn in 1997’s production of A Doll’s House. Best known for his role of Ser Alliser Thorne in HBO’s hugely successful series Game Of Thrones, his extensive theatre credits include Julius Caesar, King Lear and Henry IV for the RSC, and Mathias’ production of Dance Of Death at the National Theatre, in which he appeared alongside McKellen.
No Man’s Land will follow two high profile productions into the Wyndham’s Theatre. Current hit People, Places & Things, which stars recent Olivier Award winner Denise Gough, runs until 18 June, with Broadway Lady Day At Emerson’s Bar & Grill following from 25 June to 3 September.
