Liverpool-based theatre company Big Teeth returns this spring with a production of perennial fringe favourite, Jim Cartwright’s Two.
Comprising of graduate performers and creatives living in the city, Big Teeth says its aim is “to stage modern classic works that are often discussed and critiqued, but not often seen live on local stages”.
Two centralises its story around the landlord and landlady of a pub in the north of England. Throughout the play, audiences are introduced to a variety of customers and follow the banter and bickering of the landlord and landlady throughout one evening of trading – all portryed by just two performers (for this production, Jazz Jago and Sean Kirkpatrick).
Not for the first time, the show is being staged at The Pilgrim Pub, in the city centre, where the company says it will “venture into the immersive” as the action takes place around the audience.
Founded in 2013 by Sean Kirkpatrick and Joel Whitall, they say Big Teeth’s ethos is to make mainstream theatre accessible and to provide a platform for artists to gain vital experience to build Liverpool’s theatrical scene. For Two, director Sarah Sharp makes her professional debut, having graduated from Edge Hill University last year.
