Jim Cartwright?s homage to a traditional northern pub, the surreal comedy, Two. won the Manchester Evening News Best New Play Award before transferring to the Young Vic in London. Subsequently, it has scarcely been off stage.

Now, 27 years later, the Wightman Theatre has the privilege of presenting the follow-up: Two 2. Or should that be Two squared? Or maybe even Tutu, given that among this updated parade of eccentrics is a burly female bouncer with secret desires to become a ballet dancer.

From the writer of The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Two 2 revisits the lives, loves, hopes and fears of regulars in a Northern boozer. There are laughs and tears along the way, accompanied by tremendous audience involvement and interaction, all handled with style by the only two actors on stage, who play all 15 characters between them.

Time may have passed but the pub is still standing - just. Punters are now few and far between, and despite all attempts at quiz nights, karaoke and pub grub it could soon be last orders for the struggling landlord and lady. At odds with one another, but holding it together one shift at a time, their lives have become as bitter as the ale they serve. But when a once in a life time opportunity presents itself in the form of a one way ticket out of there, will either of them have the courage to turn their backs on the pub, and most importantly, each other?
