TWO by Jim Cartwright

A real time, one scene snapshot of life in a local pub one weekend evening. The action revolves around the landlord and landlady, who run the pub, and different pairs of people who are customers. It moves back and forth, spotlighting the different relationships, coming back to the landlord and landlady each time. All the characters are portrayed by the two actors on stage. Thought provoking relationships.

ESCAPED ALONE by Caryl Churchill

Three old friends and a neighbour, backyard tea with environmental disaster, exploring themes of politics, crisis, communication and female endurance. A summer of afternoons in the back yard. Tea and catastrophe! The pleasant conversation is frequently interrupted, by the neighbour, Mrs. Jarrett, who addresses the audience with long monologues about an apocalyptic world. The play speaks to our fears about the future of the planet, as well as our personal anxieties, while also offering some salvation in the strength of our community, as friends, neighbours or open-minded theatre goers. Humour and pathos.
