On Tour: TWO by Jim Cartwright
Ensemble Theatre’s hugely successful production of TWO by Jim Cartwright is heading out on the road! Seen by Ensemble Theatre audiences in 2017, TWO introduces fourteen colourful characters, all skilfully played by Brian Meegan and Kate Raison. 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 landlord and landlady who struggle with an unspoken secret…
The planned twelve week tour of TWO takes in 25 venues in five states and territories – WA, Northern Territory, Victoria, Queensland and NSW. The tour will reach both major cities and remote and outer regional venues such as Warrnambool, Dubbo and Mackay with an expected audience of over 11,000 people.
The reputation of Ensemble Theatre and the previous success of the theatre’s productions at many of the venues on the tour (particularly the award-winning TUESDAYS WITH MORRIE, also directed by Kilmurry) make this an excellent addition to the presenter’s 2019 seasons.
“Not only does Jim Cartwright have a timeless following which our audiences will flock to, but include the renowned reputation of the Ensemble Theatre into the mix and it will be a standout production to include in our Season Program.” Chris King, Laycock Street Community Theatre
As part of Ensemble Theatre’s vision Theatre For Everyone, we have developed a complementary outreach program in consultation with presenting partners. Designed to sit alongside the performances, these events including Q&As, post-show discussions and theatre-based workshops will maximize engagement with audiences, theatre practitioners and community members and will support the presenters in achieving their audience and community goals.
