TWO Tour Announcement

19 Dec 2018

In February 2019, 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 is an internationally acclaimed play by multi-award winning UK playwright Jim Cartwright, skillfully adapted for Australian audiences by Ensemble Theatre Artistic Director Mark Kilmurry. A two-hander that famously features 14 characters, TWO is performed by two consummate and well-known actors, Kate Raison and Brian Meegan.

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.
