Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart will reunite on stage and tour the UK in Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land.
The duo last starred together on the UK stage in Samuel Beckett’s Waiting for Godot, but will return to theatres with a revival of Pinter’s 1975 play.
The actors, who play Magneto (Sir Ian) and Xavier (Sir Patrick) in the X-Men film franchise, are long-time friends and frequent collaborators.
No Man’s Land will tour the UK before opening in the West End at Wyndham’s Theatre.
Mirfield-born Sir Patrick said: “I saw the original production of No Man’s Land three times in one week at Wyndham’s Theatre and would have seen it more if I could have afforded the tickets.
“I made a promise to myself that one day I would play Spooner or Hirst but to be doing it back at Wyndham’s with Ian McKellen was a fantasy I never entertained.”
