An apparently ordinary night in a pub in Bolton, Greater Manchester. The pub's landlord and landlady hide their hurt behind masks of hospitality and hostility. Their customers are a motley bunch - flirtatious, damaged, grieving, strange, affectionate: a collage of fascinating characters.
Jim Cartwright’s ‘Two’ combines hilarious comic scenes with ones of visceral tragedy, and his dialogue is rich with poetry and truth. English Theatre Madrid have updated the action to 2019, but the play’s themes of deep love, heartache and resilience are timeless.
We are delighted to present our first site-specific production, and we hope that performing the play in an actual pub will add to the profound yet comedic realism of the writing. And you can even enjoy a pint with your play!
