1 pub. 14 different characters. 2 actors.
TWO is hilarious, yet heart-breaking, and presents a slice of working-class life in a Northern local pub in the 1980s. With a constantly quarrelling landlord and landlady, and the dozen regulars pulling up a stool, all life is present in this pub. It is the heart of communities. It is where people laugh, share stories, celebrate and mourn. It is a place of failed aspirations and unfulfilled lives.
Through this range of colourful characters, the rich tapestry of their interconnecting lives is revealed. With the fragile relationship of our less than cordial hosts at breaking point, a rollercoaster of emotions unfolds.
Jim Cartwright has written extensively for stage, television and radio with his hugely successful plays (including The Rise and Fall of Little Voice and Road) performed at the Royal Court Theatre, National Theatre, the West End and on Broadway. They have won numerous awards, including the Olivier and Evening Standard awards.
Audience members can experience Derby Theatre’s production of TWO like no other show at the Theatre before, by booking exclusive on-stage Experience Seats. This is a unique chance to be immersed in the production and get up close and personal to the actors and the wonderfully authentic stage set, designed in great detail to replicate a traditional pub.
Monday – Thursday: £26.50 (including a drink, also available on Fri 2 Mar)
Friday & Saturday: £36 (including a drink and meal, excluding the first preview on Fri 2 Mar)
Concessions rate now available: £2 off
These exclusive seats will also include a drink from the on-stage working bar before the show (available on the first preview on Friday 2 March and then Monday – Thursday performances during the run) and on Friday and Saturday performances (excluding Friday 2 March), there will be an extra special opportunity to enjoy a pre-theatre meal and a drink in the cosy surroundings of the Theatre’s ‘local’ on the main stage. There are just 24 Experience Seats available per performance, so early booking is strongly recommended.
Booking for Experience Seats is only available through Box Office. Please read our key information and book by calling 01332 593939.
Please note that season tickets are not available on Experience Seats.
