Roddy Doyle’s ‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ Two Pints takes to the Abbey Stage this summer after sold-out tours of pubs across Ireland, the UK and the US.
The hilarious and provocative Two Pints started as a conversation on Facebook. Now it’s a play.
Two men meet for a pint. They talk about their Da’s, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife…
Settle down and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights.
Please take note that Two Pints has three acts and two intervals – make sure not to leave before the third and final act!
The running time, including intervals, is approximately 2 hours, 20 minutes.
This summer, Two Pints will be performed in rep on the Abbey Stage with The Unmanageable Sisters.
See both shows for just €40 when you book your tickets at the same time.
