Country Arts SA's Arts On Screen will be bringing popular theatre show No Man's Land to Whyalla's Middleback Arts Centre.

The play features well-known duo Ian McKellen and Patrick Stewart, who play two ageing writers drinking into the night and telling fantastic stories to one another.

As the pair become increasingly inebriated, and their stories increasingly unbelievable, the lively conversation soon turns into a revealing power game.

No Man's Land tells a unique and mysterious story which explores poignant themes of old age, memory and companionship.

SA Director/Producer Rob Brookman said the act of bringing live theatre shows to the silver screen brings the shows to a wider range of audiences around the world.

“Live capture film may not quite be the same thing as being in the theatre for a live performance but it’s the next best thing,” he said.

“State Theatre Company has recently been involved in the live capture of its production of “Things I know To Be True” in London and also “Rumpelstiltskin” in Adelaide.

“The results are excellent and we can’t wan’t wait to share them with wider audiences though both screenings and subscription streaming.”

No Man's Land will be showing at the MIddleback Arts Centre on Tuesday, March 7, from 7pm to late.
