Santa Ana Sites, a program of community engagement to stimulate positive social interaction in diverse communities through performance art, is pleased to present Site #23. All the way from Dublin, Abbey Theatre’s Two Pints brings wit and charm to your night out drinking, Thursday, May 2 through Sunday, May 5 at the Red Room at Chapter One.
After two sold-out tours in pubs across Ireland and the UK, Roddy Doyle’s ‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ Two Pints heads to the US. As Director, Caitriona McLaughlin says, ‘the play is utterly true to the banter you might hear between any two men in their 60s sitting in a pub,’ It’s colorful, humorous, and full of life. The characters talk about their Da’s, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife, and more.
It started as a Facebook conversation. Now it’s a play at a pub. Two Pints brilliantly blends the intelligence and existential insights of Samuel Beckett with the humor and charm of a barstool philosopher; only to be expected from the poet laureate of Ireland’s working class behind The Commitments, The Snapper, and The Van.
Ireland’s national theater, Abbey Theatre is inspired by Irish dramatic writing and the ideals of their revolutionary founders. In every endeavor, they are for Ireland and all its people, looking toward inclusivity and diversity. Therefore their productions imaginatively engage with their audiences, ambitiously and courageously.
