TWO has garnered rave reviews around the world and well-known actors Paul Glover and Lisa Chappell reunite in October for Tadpole Productions to bring you this wonderfully clever play by well-known English actor and playwright, Jim Cartwright. Set in a rundown local pub it takes the audience through a spectrum of human emotions, giving intimate insights into the lives of the colourful pub regulars.
These great actors play fourteen characters, from the bantering and bickering publican and his wife to a womanising would-be Lothario and his long suffering girlfriend. There’s the ‘other woman’, hiding behind her sunglasses, trying to drum up courage to confront her married lover; the old man who takes quiet comfort in his memories of his late wife; the fat couple who come to the pub to eat crisps and watch TV; while a buttoned up headmistress type reveals her secret lust for “big men”. In a series of sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, yet always incredibly human vignettes, each character or couple reflects fragments of ourselves as the play mines the depths of human experience.
Described as hilarious, heart achingly sad and above all honest, don’t miss Tadpole Productions TWO directed by Janice Finn.
You will laugh, you will cry – and you may need a drink…
TWO is staged at The PumpHouse Theatre in Takapuna from Thursday 26th October to Sunday 5th November, with weekend matinees.
