Two legendary British actors will take to the big screen Saturday at Marion Ross Performing Arts Center during a high-definition live broadcast performance through National Theatre Live.
Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart will return to the West End stage in Harold Pinter’s comic classic “No Man’s Land,” broadcast live from Wyndam’s Theatre in London.
National Theatre Live is the National Theatre’s groundbreaking project to broadcast the best of British theater live from the London stage to cinemas around the world.

“No Man’s Land” tells the story of two aging writers, Hirst and Spooner, who meet one summer evening in a Hampstead pub and continue their drinking into the night at Hirst’s stately house nearby.
As the pair become increasingly inebriated — and their stories increasingly unbelievable — the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game, further complicated by the return home of two sinister young men.
Owen Teale and Damien Molony also star in the production.
The broadcast begins at 7 p.m. and will be followed by a question and answer with the cast and director Sean Mathias.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $12 for students. Tickets can be purchased in advance by phone at 877-730-3144, online at actonbroadway.com or at the box office at 147 N. Broadway in Albert Lea.
