It’s the usual hectic evening for the Landlord and Landlady as they tend to customers in their busy pub. They present a chirpy, united front for the punters, but the cracks of their strained relationship, caused by a painful, unhealed wound from the past, are about to tear open.
As their problems become apparent, we are introduced to the ‘regulars’ of the pub – a host of eccentric characters, each with their own stories. Amongst the barflies and wallflowers are an ageing womaniser, a troubled old man, and Alice, who’s “never been the same since Elvis died.
Just two actors take on all fourteen roles between them in Jim Cartwright’s beautifully crafted, gentle comedy-drama. (Only two actors need to be onstage at any one time) Two takes you on a journey through the pains, pleasures and passions of a Northern pub life: often touching, occasionally harrowing, but essentially life-affirming.
