NO MAN’S LAND
By Harold Pinter
Directed by WILLIAM B. DAVIS
PINTER AT HIS MOST MYSTERIOUS
The Smoking Gun Collective is back with Nobel Prize Winner Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land.
Under the direction of William B. Davis, The Smoking Gun Collective, which brought you the thrilling J.B. Priestley’s, An Inspector Calls and Chekhov’s masterpiece, The Cherry Orchard, is proud to present, “No Man’s Land”.
A rare opportunity to see this classicby Harold Pinter, considered by the Nobel academy “The foremost representative of British drama in the second half of the twentieth century.”
The story seems simple but is anything but. A reclusive but once famous writer – Hirst – has invited the struggling minor poet – Spooner – for a late-night drink. Spooner, it seems, has more in mind than a mere drink but has to deal with Hirst’s manservants, Foster and Briggs. Pinter’s characteristic menace leads to a deeper exploration of memory and the meaning of life.
