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.

    By John Martin Stevens

    Dreamshed Theatre

    During the early years of the second world war two evacuees meet in a small Wiltshire town where a friendship and love affair begins that will last a lifetime.

    When, sixty years later their love letters and other correspondence are rediscovered, it soon becomes clear that whilst war brought them together, peace could have torn them apart.

    This new drama written and performed by local writer John Martin Stevens, weaves together real events with imaginative and at times heartfelt storytelling as a son discovers that history is indeed written by the victor.

    The Cherry Orchard

    by Anton Chekhov translation by Michael Frayn

    "Frayn's translation, which strikes me as splendidly lucid and alive...will be acted again and again" (New Statesman).

    In Chekhov's tragi-comedy - perhaps his most popular play - the Gayev family is torn by powerful forces deeply rooted in history and the society in which they live. Their estate is hopelessly in debt and when urged to cut down their beautiful cherry orchard and sell the land for holiday cottages, they are confronted by an impossible decision. "At the time when The Cherry Orchard was written, the years before the revolution of 1905, Chekhov considered revolution in Russia irreversible and desirable."
