No Man’s Land by Harold Pinter

A chance meeting between two elderly writers in a North London pub leads to an alcohol-fuelled night of reminiscence and verbal sparring.

Hirst, a wealthy alcoholic recluse, invites Spooner, a down-at-heel poet, to his Hampstead townhouse for a nightcap. As the shadows lengthen and the whisky flows, their stories become more elaborate and improbable, until the unexpected arrival of two younger men forces events to take an unexpected turn.

In No Man’s Land, his most beguiling and atmospheric play, Harold Pinter mingles truth and memory, art and language to create a world of dark comedy and subtle power games, where nothing is as it seems.

About London Classic Theatre Ltd

London Classic Theatre is based in Purley, Surrey. The company is run by Artistic Director Michael Cabot and Producer Kathryn Cabot.

Originally founded in 1993, London Classic Theatre initially produced European Classics on the London Fringe, establishing an excellent reputation and quickly coming to the attention of the national press. In 2000, London Classic Theatre was launched as a touring company, our production of David Mamet’s Oleannaopening in the 130-seat studio at Harrow Arts Centre.

It has been a fascinating journey. Since that first appearance, we have performed to over 600,000 people at more than 250 theatres and arts centres around the UK and Ireland. The aim, expressed in our original mission statement, has always been to produce challenging, accessible drama for audiences in London and the regions. To offer our work to venues of all scales and sizes, from arts centres and studio spaces to Number One and repertory theatres. To build and maintain relationships with these venues, and most importantly, to produce theatre of the highest quality.

Recent productions include: Noël Coward’s Private Lives, Terry Johnson’s Hysteria, Harold Pinter’s The Birthday Party, Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, Alan Ayckbourn’s Absent Friends, Joe Orton’s Entertaining Mr Sloane, Oscar Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest and Peter Shaffer’s iconic Equus. We have also staged new translations of two 18th Century comedies, The Game of Love and Chanceand The Double Inconstancy by Marivaux, as well as two UK premières, Hugh Leonard’s Love in the Title and Joanna Murray-Smith’s Nightfall.

In Autumn 2016, London Classic Theatre worked in association with Kathryn Barker Productions to stage a national tour of Henry Naylor’s award-winning play, The Collector. It marked a new chapter in our producing output, with a welcome focus on new work and an opportunity to build relationships with several new venues, among them Leicester Curve, Nottingham Playhouse and York Theatre Royal.
