IAN MCKELLEN ON STAGE

Ian McKellen brings his new solo show to the Donmar for a special late-night performance on Friday 1 March 2019. Every single seat will be available - for free - to those aged 25 and under through our YOUNG+FREE scheme. The ballot for tickets is open now, enter by signing up to our YOUNG+FREE email list.

In his own words, Ian McKellen says:

I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theatres I know well and a few that I don’t. The show starts with Gandalf and will probably end with an invitation to act with me on stage. In-between there will be anecdotes and acting. I open at my local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.

Live theatre has always been thrilling to me, as an actor and in the audience. Growing up in Lancashire, I was grateful to those companies who toured beyond London and I’ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions. Sean Mathias, the director and I have worked together for stage and screen, many happy times.

I was first at the Donmar when it was still a dance studio being fitted for costumes for Richard II (1968). 10 years later I played Macbeth here with Judi Dench and in 2006 opened in Mark Ravenhill’s The Cut. I’ve seen countless excellent productions here which respond to the Donmar’s uniquely intimate space.

If you will be aged 25 or under on 1 March, you could be in with a chance to book a ticket for you and a friend to this special performance.
