Reform Theatre/Harrogate Theatre in association with Middlesbrough Theatre presents

TWO by Jim Cartwright

One pub. Fourteen characters. Two actors.

From the award-winning writer of Little Voice and Road comes this acclaimed two-hander, a gritty yet heart-warming look at life in a Northern local in the 1980s, filled with pathos and humour.

Let the Landlord and Landlady introduce you to all the punters and regulars from early doors until closing time as well as uncovering their own tragic secret.

Their cheery greeting and friendly banter barely disguise their contempt for each other. They met outside the pub when they were kids, had their first drink there, courted there, had their Twenty Firsts there, Wedding Reception there, and now they own the place. All life is present in this pub, where people celebrate and mourn in an unflinching mixture of tragedy and comedy.

During the course of the evening assorted customers pass through the doors, including a little boy left by his father, an event that triggers a move towards a fragile reconciliation between the pub couple as their secret tragedy, swallowed back for seven years, comes to a head after drinking – up time.

Tickets £15.50 / Matinee £12.50 (Including Booking Fee)
