"Warm, tender and often wryly comic" - Guardian
A local pub, sometime in the 80s.
Two actors swap multiple characters to share stories and trade blows as pints are pulled and relationships dissected in Jim Cartwright’s bittersweet comic drama.
Each vignette skillfully combines pathos and humor. Sharp-talking comedy makes way for bleak urban poetry, followed by dark tragedy.
Two looks honestly at the joys and stresses of everyday working lives.
