Two Pints at The Peacock, Sunderland

An Abbey Theatre Production
Presented by Live Theatre in association with Sunderland Culture

Written by Roddy Doyle
Directed by Caitriona McLaughlin
Designed by Kate Moylan
Stars Liam Carney and Philip Judge

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, the Abbey Theatre, the National Theatre of Ireland, is bringing Two Pints to the North East for its British Premiere.

In Sunderland, it’s coming to the beautifully restored The Peacock pub, a perfect pub-setting.

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