Hot young actor Damien Molony, best known for his roles in BBC’s Being Human, Ripper Street and Channel 4’s Crashing, joins the cast of No Man’s Land.
Molony will play the role of ‘Foster’ in Harold Pinter’s classic and joins the previously announced Ian McKellen as Spooner, Patrick Stewart as Hirst and Owen Teale as Briggs.
In addition to his recent television roles, Molony’s notable theatre credits include The Hard Problem and Travelling Light for the National Theatre, If You Don’t Let Us Dream, We Won’t Let You Sleep for the Royal Court Theatre, ‘Tis Pity She’s a Whore for West Yorkshire Playhouse and The Body of an American for The Gate and Royal & Derngate.
Directed by Sean Mathias, this production of No Man’s Land starring McKellen and Stewart received highly acclaimed reviews at the Cort Theatre in New York whilst in repertory alongside Waiting for Godot. The production of Waiting for Godot had transferred from London where it celebrated a sell-out run at the Theatre Royal Haymarket, the last time McKellen and Stewart shared a West End stage.
Sean Mathias says “Directing No Man’s Land in America proved to be one of the greatest joys in my career. Always challenging but bringing immense rewards too. Like a prospector mining for diamond nuggets. I look forward to working on this new production with Ian, Patrick, Owen and Damian and discovering all kinds of unexpected jewels together.”
No Man’s Land will tour venues across the UK from 3 August 2016 prior to a limited 14 week run at London’s Wyndham’s Theatre from 8 September 2016.
