‘You are in no man’s land. Which never moves, which never changes, which never grows older, but which remains forever, icy and silent'
From the pen of one of our greatest playwrights, comes Nobel Prize laureate Harold Pinter's superb tragicomic gem.
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.
No Man’s Land will have set and costume design by Stephen Brimson Lewis and lighting design by Peter Kaczorowski.

REVIEW: No Man’s Land, Wyndham’s Theatre
This is, without doubt, one of 2016’s must see shows. It combines a well-known play and two national treasures; Sirs Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, as well as some excellent support from Owen Teale and Damien Molony but as strong as the performances are it is an absurdist piece and some audiences may struggle to understand the basics of the production let alone its more complex themes.

Stars In London: Where The Famous People Are Performing In The West End
"I wanna go where the people are..." Yes, I'm quoting The Little Mermaid but you have to admit, the more popular shows do beckon. The West End is often studded with stars and they do bring a lot of attraction. Are they as great as their reputation or are we blinded by their fame? Here are just some of those stars that are gracing the West End right now (and some to come):

Are Theatre Memberships Worth It?
In my ever growing quest for cheap theatre tickets, I like my average ticket cost to be around £15-20 over a calendar year. I’ve taken out lots of theatre memberships across London theatres but are they worth the one-off cost or direct debit? If you genuinely want to support the arts then memberships are worth the money but if like me you are after priority booking, bar discounts and other goodies it is more debatable. I’ll compare and contrast my (current) memberships.
