Friday 2 - Saturday 24 March 2018
Schools Performances: Wednesday 14 March, 2:30pm, Thursday 15 March, 10:30am and Wednesday 21 March, 2:30pm
Performance and workshops perfect for GCSE and A Level Drama students
Our big production for the spring is Jim Cartwright’s brilliant comic two-hander. Set during the 1980s in a pub in the North of England, a bickering landlord and landlady take orders from the locals. As a range of colourful characters pull up a stool, 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.
TWO is a mainstay of GCSE and A Level Drama curriculums due to its heavy use of multi-roling and a wide variety of characters and themes that cover love, loss, commitment, faithfulness, domestic abuse, adultery and growing old.
We are offering schools tickets for only £9.50 each, with one teacher free with every ten tickets purchased.
To make a schools booking please call the Box Office on 01332 593939 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
As part of this production, we are offering fantastic participation and learning opportunities, each providing a wonderful insight into the production, its themes and the array of characters in preparation for exams.
TWO - Explore Session with actors Sean McKenzie and Jo Mousley
Wednesday 14 March, following the 2:30pm performance
An interactive session which helps students to understand the array of characters and how our actors approached the creation of them. Students will even get the chance to become the director themselves, giving new character choices for the actors to explore… on the spot! This session can also support students to critically analyse this particular production for their live review, as we unpack the creative decisions made by the designer and the director.
The session will take place in the auditorium after the show and will also be attended by other schools. Places are limited so early booking is advised to avoid disappointment.
Suitable for: KS3, 4 and 5
Duration: 1 hour and 15 minutes (including a short break)
Wednesday 21 March, after the 2.30pm performance
A chance to see key moments from the play replayed with input from the student audience to help explore character, story and production elements. Helps GCSE and A level students with their live theatre review.

Prices: please enquire
For those school groups who would like to come in the evening there is a post-show discussion taking place on Thursday 22 March after the 7:30pm performance. School tickets are also available on this date.
