Two by Jim Cartwright

Two

By Jim Cartwright

Set in a local northern pub - Two tells the story of the The Landlord and Landlady, their cheery greeting and friendly banter barely disguises 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.

    Paler, Still

    by Oonagh Wall in collaboration with the company.

    Nothing grows in Dublin anymore.
    Concrete, glass and grey. The landscape is the same everywhere,
    Beyond the Pale, in the rural Irish boglands, an abandoned Hotel rots.
    This would be a safe place to stagnate.
    Or so it seems.
    Set in a near-future Ireland were the Western World has eaten itself into anonymity and another recession: Paler, Still is a new tragi-comedy and is anseo|anois theatre's debut production.
    Paler, Still tells a story set in Ireland, but it is not just a story for the Irish. This small country is a microcosm for something we see happening all over the Western World. The poverty gap widens, some opportunities only available to a select few, society circling back on itself again and again and our play asks, what is the cost of progress? What is lost as we charge into the future? Are some people always left behind? And, if we despair at society, can we simply opt out?
