Riverside Theatres presents
An Ensemble Theatre production

TWO

By Jim Cartwright


Directed by Ensemble Theatre Artistic Director Mark Kilmurry, TWO introduces fourteen colourful characters, all skilfully played by two actors Brian Meegan (Sea Patrol, Water Rats) and Kate Raison (A Country Practice, E-Street).

Set in the local pub, you’ll meet all the regulars, a misfit crowd of eccentric and hilarious individuals. There’s Moth, who loves Maud (and every other woman) fervently; Mrs Iger, with her passion for quiet, strong men; possessive Roy, jealous of anybody who looks at Lesley (even the darts players); Alice and Fred and their Elvis obsession; and the publicans themselves – a married couple with an unspoken secret…

A classic and timeless comedy that is funny, heart-warming and poignant but it’s definitely not to be missed!

Warmly comic…character portraits are sharp…” Sydney Morning Herald

Director Mark Kilmurry has chosen well in casting real life husband and wife Brian Meegan and Kate Raison who give something of an acting master class.” Sydney Arts Guide
