A message from Ian McKellen:
I’m celebrating my 80th birthday by touring a new solo show to theaters i know well and a few 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 the local arts centre in January and end up by August in Orkney.
Live theatre had 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 replaying that debt by touring up and the country myself, with the RSC, the National Theatre, Prospect Theatre, the Actors’ Company, as well as with commercial productions.
James McKellen lift Ballymena in 1840 since then our family have been settled in England but i very much wanted to discover my roots during my UK tour celebrating my 80th birthday. It’s high time i made my debut here raising funds to support the work at The Braid. See you there i hope!
