Fourteen characters, two actors and one night in a bar in Northern England. This is the recipe for Jim Cartwright’s Two. Blended together with a whirlwind of emotion, questionable customer service and unspoken truths. From the landlord and landlady who despise the sight and sound of one another to a shaken (not stirred) cocktail of customers, Two explores the different types of relationships in society today. Beautifully written & performed.
“Jim Cartwright’s 1989 play is a distillation (no pun intended) of what we’ve all experienced whilst nursing a drink in the local – rows, adolescent showing off, pathetic pick-up lines and overheard snippets of bizarre conversations” – J.D. Atkinson
The comedy, descending into tragedy and back to hope, was handled with absolute ease by the cast and we were swept along with this rollercoaster of emotions.
