Michael Kitchen played the character of Foster in another Harold Pinter work, No Man’s Land. The stage production premiered in London in 1975 before Michael Kitchen replaced Michael Feast in limited engagements in Toronto (Sep. 13, 1976 – Oct. 9, 1976), Washington D.C. (Oct. 11 – Nov. 6, 1976), and on Broadway (Nov. 8 – Dec. 18, 1976). The cast then returned to London for a final five-week run in early 1977. Fortunately, prior to the show closing it was filmed for posterity and later broadcast by the BBC in 1978. This clip from almost the end of the play is the best part, in my lowbrow opinion.
