Jonathan Bailey’s Edgar is a touching study of transformation — from naive innocence into morally serious worldliness — and Damien Molony captures the self-seeking resentment of his half-brother Edmund.
The citation states that it is in recognition of his “tireless work both in championing diversity and for his commitment to theatre, including touring productions, across the country”.He used to be partnered with Sean Mathias, and they lived together.“Now, I’ve done nine productions for Sean, so it’s very much a family,” he says.But when Lear’s status as an imposing patron dissolves, Mc Kellen movingly conveys his bewilderment — commands and thunderous oaths giving way to plaintive questions and social criticism.Jonathan Munby’s modern-dress account, clear-sighted rather than radical, begins with pageantry and ritualistic song.“And I’ve known Patrick [Stewart] on and off for 40 years.

I meet him the day after his latest London show – a production of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land – has opened.
It is 52 years after he made his West End debut and he is on the front page of the London Evening Standard with his co-star Patrick Stewart, with a rave five-star review of the play inside the paper. “The Standard is very good – it realises that London theatre is a big part of London’s image of itself, and so it reflects that.” He’s less effusive of the unwanted attentions of a paparazzi photographer, who starts shooting pictures unbidden of him as we sit at an outside cafe table next to Wyndham’s Theatre’s stage door.
