Ian McKellen on Stage
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 donâ€™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 Iâ€™ve always enjoyed repaying that debt by touring up and down the country myself, with the National Theatre, Royal Shakespeare Company, Prospect Theatre, the Actorsâ€™ Company, as well as with commercial productions. Sean Mathias, the director and I have worked together for stage and screen, many happy times. I began my career working for repertory companies in England and Iâ€™ve watched with admiration Dundeeâ€™s dedication to presenting an ensemble in a variety of plays, thrilling for actors as well as audience over many a season. All profits will benefit a campaign to celebrate 80 years of Dundee Rep Theatre, 20 years of its resident ensemble and 10 years of its young personâ€™s Enterprise scheme.â€
