A message from Ian McKellen:
“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 RSC, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions.
As a Lancastrian, touring the country with my new solo show, I wanted to make my debut at The Dukes theatre. It will be an opportunity to remember my youth as well as act Shakespeare and others, in support of the summer walkabout “play in the park”. See you there, I hope!”
