About the show

Set in a local northern pub, Two tells the story of The Landlord and Landlady, their cheery greeting and friendly banter barely disguise their contempt for each other. 

They met outside the pub when they were kids and now they own the place. During the course of the evening, assorted customers pass through, and we get a small snapshot into each of their lives. 

From the award-winning writer of Little Voice and Road, Jim Cartwright's third play Two was first performed in 1989 at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton, then transferred to the Young Vic Theatre. It won the Manchester Evening News Theatre Award for Best New Play.
