William Hurt returns to Portland for ‘No Man’s Land’

William Hurt and Robyn Nevin in "Long Day's Journey Into Night"

The William Hurt-Allen Nause connection will resurface in October, for Artists Repertory Theatre’s version of Harold Pinter’s No Man’s Land.  ART co-produced Long Day’s Journey Into Night with the Sydney Theatre Company last season with Hurt as James Tyrone in Eugene O’Neill’s classic, and he’s also appeared here in Michael Healey’s Drawer Boy  (2004) and an adaptation of Chekhov’s Uncle Vanya (2007). Nause and Hurt worked together at Oregon Shakespeare Festival in the 1970s before Hurt’s Hollywood career blossomed after his appearance in Altered States in 1980.

In No Man’s Land, Nause and Hurt will be joined by Tim True and Hurt’s son, Alex, for a run at Pinter’s alternately bleak and comic play, written in 1974. John Dillon, who is directing Antony and Cleopatra at the Georgia Shakespeare Festival this summer, will direct.

Single tickets for this production, and all the shows of Artists Rep’s 2011/12 season, go on sale August 1.  Ticket prices for No Man’s Land will go up by $15 (preview performances by $10) beginning August 15.  Season subscriptions are available now. No Man’s Land begins previews on Oct. 4; opening night is Oct. 7. It runs through Nov. 6.
