Sir Ian McKellen and Sir Patrick Stewart are to appear together on the London stage next year.

They will star in a revival of No Man’s Land – which they performed in rep I’m New York last year (and I was lucky enough to see).

The pair last appeared together on stage in London when they collaborated on Waiting For Godot in 2009.

No news yet on where and when they play will be staged.
