Two by Jim Cartwright (Clueless Theatre)
Grab yourself a drink, sit back and watch as this classic two-hander expertly blends together a whirlwind of emotion, questionable customer service and unspoken truths. From the landlord and landlady who despise one another to a shaken (not stirred) cocktail of customers; Two explores love in its many forms and guises. Each vignette skilfully combines pathos and humour providing the audience with laughter, tears and a thought or two to take home.
No scenery, no props, no sound effects - just the cast, the audience and the script. Minimalism is the key to this enthralling piece of drama which concentrates on the characters and poetry of Cartrwright’s writing.
