Guildford Fringe Theatre Company is to present a new professional production of Jim Cartwright’s gritty play Two this November.

Performances will take place at the Back Room of the Star Inn, Quarry Street, Guildford between Monday 2 – Saturday 7 November 2020 (excluding Friday).


First performed in 1989 at the Octagon Theatre in Bolton, Two follows the simple concept of two actors playing fourteen different characters between them. The action is set entirely in the local pub - in this case, The Back Room of The Star Inn of course!

The Landlord and Landlady’s cheery greetings and friendly banter barely disguise their contempt for each other. Having met outside the pub when they were kids, they now own the place. During the course of the evening, assorted customers pass through and we are given a small snapshot into each of their lives. Two is storytelling at its best.

Laurie Duncan and Claire Marlein will play the Landlord and Landlady, respectively.

Two is directed and produced by Nick Wyschna and Charlotte Bateup for Guildford Fringe Theatre Company. The production comes hot on the heels of Guildford Fringe’s successful short tours of John Godber’s multi-role plays Teechers and Bouncers last year, as well as their recent online adult pantomime, Pinocchio Gets Wood.

You can book tickets for Two online here or call the Box Office on 01483 361101.

The show runs for an hour with the venue following the latest safety guidelines including a reduced capacity to allow for social distancing measures with mandatory face coverings.
