Exeter Northcott - Sir Ian McKellen 80th Birthday Solo Tour

About

SORRY - this event is now sold out. 

 

Sir Ian McKellen is to celebrate his 80th birthday next year by raising funds for theatres, with a new solo show which will play on 80 stages across the UK – including the Northcott on July 1st.  All profits will benefit specific causes at each theatre. 

He will visit theatres large and small with which he has personal connections, including amateur groups he knew as a child and notable playhouses he has played in as a professional actor over the last half-century.  Ian will be returning to the stage in Exeter fifty years after his first appearance.

His intimate show is a mixture of anecdote and acting, including Tolkien, Shakespeare, others…and you the audience.

Sir Ian quotes "“I was last at the Northcott as Marlowe’s Edward II in 1969 so this return with my new one man show 50 years on is an appropriate part of my tour celebrating my 80th birthday. I’m pleased that all profits will support young and emerging artists from Exeter and thereabouts.”
