One Night, One Pub, TWO actors, 14 characters.
Set in a local pub, Jim Cartwright’s timeless comedy TWO features a landlord, landlady, and their colourful regulars over one notable evening - with all 14 characters played by actor couple Blaise and Sarah Barham.
Each character has a story to tell, sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, always human. They include the bantering, bickering publican and his wife; the womaniser and his long-suffering girlfriend; two elderly pensioners, one who wishes her husband was dead and the other wishing his wife was alive. We also meet the 'other woman', hiding behind her sunglasses, trying to drum up courage to confront her married lover; an eccentric couple who come to the pub to eat crisps; and a lady who reveals her secret lust for 'big men'!
Described as ‘sharp, witty and quickfire’ by the Guardian, and following on from a Southern tour last year, we are happy to bring TWO to the Dunedin Fringe 2021.
Auckland-based director John Goudge says “the play takes comic twists and turns before reaching a powerful ending”.
Audience social media comments:
"I highly recommend this show. It will have you hooked from the start to finish and take you on an emotional roller-coaster," "Brilliant", "Great laughs".
TWO is Sahara BreeZe’s third play to be toured, following the acclaimed production of Dear Lupin in 2019, and The New Real? in 2020.
Audiences may recognise ‘award-winning’ actors Blaise and Sarah from their performances with Remarkable Theatre, including most recently Cosi and One Man, Two Guvnors and a devised Verbatim piece ‘The New Real?’ performed in Queenstown & Wanaka last October as part of RENEW ART 2020.
A brilliantly, surrealistically and comically poetic piece” – The Sunday Times.
“this extraordinary gifted and original voice…populates the space with broad humour, dry wit and often shudderingly moving poetry” – Time Out.
