British Premiere

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.

‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ - Sunday Independent

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