Cirencester Theatre Company back with a bang
By David Wood
Voted Cirencester's creative champions last year, non-profit Cirencester Theatre Company are delighted to announce they're back with a bang this November.
The award-winning has kicked off rehearsals for Jim Cartwright's brilliantly funny yet heart-breaking production of TWO - the company's first live production since the pandemic.
Directed by Gill Brain and performed by talented local actors, the play offers a glimpse of working-class life in a northern pub, a place of love, laughter and loss.
With a constantly quarrelling landlord and landlady and a dozen colourful regulars pulling up a stool, the rich tapestry of their interconnecting lives is revealed in one formidable night.
Cirencester Theatre Company chose the play to celebrate pub culture and the communities that meet in them, after many months of closure during the lockdown.
TWO will run for three nights from Thursday 11th to Saturday 13th November at the Sundial Theatre in Cirencester.
Experience tickets can be purchased for £16, which includes a drink, snack and exclusive seat right beside the stage, which promises to deliver a truly immersive experience.
Tiered seating offers a comfortable and unobstructed view of the stage at £12 per person (concessions £10) available from the Sundial Theatre Box Office www.sundial-theatre.co.uk .
For one night only, on Saturday 20th November, TWO will be performed inside the cosy taproom of Corinium Ales micro-brewery. Tickets for this are selling fast at £16 per person, and include a drink and snack. Bookings can be made by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
Gill Brain, Cirencester Theatre Company member and director of TWO, said: "This is the first time we've reunited in person as a group since the pandemic - it's been pure joy to be in the presence of each other again. Our first rehearsal was rather emotional - we're creative human beings, we're built to be together.
"TWO is the perfect play to debut after the pandemic. It's hilarious, but there are also some very poignant moments. We're excited to welcome audiences back to the theatre - we've missed the smell of the auditorium, the suspense of opening night and the sound of the applause. We can't wait to entertain you again."
