Behind the bar of their Northern Pub, the Landlord and Landlady welcome their regulars with open arms. Lending an ear for stories of celebration, of loss, of love and of despair, the bickering couple work together to keep the locals in high spirits, with drinks, conversation and laughter. Each vignette skilfully combines pathos and humour and when a little boy is left behind, a fragile reconciliation occurs as their own dark tragedy is revealed.
Performed by the two actors playing all 14 characters, Jim Cartwright’s poignant play takes audiences into the world of a working -class pub over the course of one night. Weaving together rich stories full of human emotion, this dark comedy gives an intimate insight into a variety of characters and will make you laugh, and cry in equal measures.
