'Two' & 'Bed' Summary

'Two' & 'Bed' by Jim Cartwright (Playwright, UK)

'Jim Cartwright is one of the mavericks of British theatre' Daily Telegraph Two: 'A sharp, salty, quickfire evocation of the surface gaiety and underlying melancholia of English pub life.' The Guardian Bed: 'It's insights into the twilight world of old age are remarkable, Cartwright's ode to sleep fizzes with puns and free association and brims with the confidence of a craftsman who can work as happily with surrealism as naturalism as he teases out snippets of life story from the ancient occupants of the bed.' City Limits 'This extraordinarily gifted and original voice ...populates the space with broad humour, dry wit and often shudderingly moving poetry.' Time Out
