About this show

Hirst, a respected and wealthy poet, comes across Spooner, a fellow poet who has fallen on hard times, in a chance meeting at Jack Straw's Castle, his local public house. They retire to Hirst's Hampstead home to continue their drinking and conversation. Later, two younger men, Foster and Briggs, arrive claiming to be Hirst's guardians. Nothing, however, is as it seems. First performed in 1975, No Man's Land is one of [Harold Pinter's most darkly comic, savagely disturbing - and seldom seen - plays. The tenuous nature of memory, and the primal, aggressive nature of men struggling to maintain their status in an unrelenting world are forged together in this modern classics.
