Set over one eventful night in a pub in the North of England, Two is a play about people. People in their extraordinary, and ordinary, everyday lives, and the strength of the human spirit - stronger than anything on offer behind the bar.
From opening time to last orders, all walks of life pass through this pub, and the comings and goings are watched over by the all-seeing, and all knowing, proprietors - the landlord and landlady at the heart and soul of their local. So get yourself a drink and settle in...

What the audiences said ....
Thank you both for a wonderful evening - a brilliant play brilliantly performed with lots to think about and laugh about (CM, London)
Brilliant play, Lesley and Robert. That twist at the end had me in tears. (FM, Wantage)
I really enjoyed last night's performance. Some great funny moments and some thought provoking ones. Hard to pull that balance off, but done with aplomb (RL, Faringdon)
TWO: 14 characters, a whirlwind of emotions and laughs along the way all in a lovely setting . Well done Lesley and Rob and the crew (RV, East Hendred)
Nobody could leave that theatre without being moved/ amused/ elated by what you gave us as an audience. (BJ, Wantage)
Great characters , loved it ! (GB, Faringdon)
Congratulations, it was an absolutely brilliant evening! Moving and thought provoking and I was moved to both tears and laughter! (JS, Faringdon)
Bravo! Wow, fantastic! Well done both. Amateur theatre at its best.(PS, Newbury)
Came last night - it was brilliant!! (FC, Faringdon)
Not in the same glass! Loved it, one of your best ! (@aisjoe)
What an absolutely cracking show, the two of you. Could have been written for Buscot Park. Who needs fireworks when you've productions of this quality on the doorstep! And for what it's worth, Moth and Maud had the best scouse accents I've heard on stage from non-natives, and that includes the West End (DH, Faringdon)
Many congratulations are in order. The play, thought provoking and harrowing at times was made so by the superb acting. To play all those characters and the lines they had to deliver to often “fresh air” was masterful. So very well done to the TWO of you and all the backroom (RS, Faringdon)
Congratulations Lesley and Robert, you were both amazing! A real roller coaster of emotions throughout. If people don't have tickets yet they are missing a great show. (LB, Faringdon)
What an amazing mix of humour and pathos. Well done to all involved. (LH, Wantage)
A great performance. Go and see it if you can (DL, Faringdon)
