When just two actors carry the weight of the production on their shoulders, they really have to be on top of their game. And boy are these two on top of their game!

Colin Connor is a regular at the Octagon and never disappoints, while for Katy Cavanagh this is her first time – but hopefully not her last. Fresh from leaving Coronation Street as Julie, she is the other half of this dynamic duo.

They play the landlord and landlady at the local pub – and the customers as well. This gives them the opportunity to play a broad range of characters and bring to life relationships that range from the sad to the happy, the funny to the menacing, the tender to the tragic. And it all comes together in a seamless transition that makes it a delight all round.

“Two” has been performed at the Octagon on more than one occasion but it’s well worth seeing again – especially as the sequel, “Two 2” will be following hot on its heels from February 12th. That’s just six days after “Two” finishes so make sure you treat yourself to this double whammy.

Tickets are available on 01204-520661.
