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.
Two was first performed in the Bolton Octagon Theatre in 1989 and transferred to London’s Young Vic in 1990. It has been performed in many different ways, most recently, a production from Deafinitely Theatre at the Southwark Playhouse which incorporated British Sign Language into the play.
“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
Two by Jim Cartwright brought the Clueless Theatre Family together. It is only fitting that our debut production be the play that inspired and captivated us. We are currently planning Venues, Dates and Festivals we will be performing our production of Two by Jim Cartwright.
All information for any and all performances will be updated on this page. Along with publicity, ticket prices, reviews and more from the Twoopers!
