Retreat into the warmth of a theatre this autumn with our pick of the 3 best shows to see in London.From newbies in London's West End to some surefire critics'choice hits,the sun may have gone,but the stage shines on,darling.
No Man's Land
Harold Pinter’s darkly absurdist classic about two old drunks,trapped in a room.
Why go?It has Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart–BFFs and two of the greatest actors ever–starring together in what may be their last major stage roles(you never know).You really don’t want to miss this.
‘Cymbeline’by Shakespeare,but renamed to reflect the fact that the biggest role in the play isn’t Cymbeline but his daughter Imogen(played by ex-EastEnder Maddy Hill).
Why go New Globe boss Emma Rice avowed that she would radically shake up Shakespeare,and has already done so with her out-there‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’.But this pointedly feminist‘reimagination’promises to push things waaaaay outside the Globe’s old trad-Shakespeare comfort zone.
