Directed by Caitriona McLaughlin
Designed by Kate Moylan

Two men meet for a pint. They talk about their dads, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife…

Roddy Doyle’s hilarious and provocative Two Pints started as a conversation on Facebook. Now it’s a play and after a recent sell-out tour performing in pubs across Ireland, it’s coming to Live Theatre for its British Premiere.

The bar is returning into the theatre so get a pint, pull up a chair, and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights...

Two Pints is presented as part of the Culture Ireland GB18 programme.
