After a sell-out tour of pubs across Ireland in 2017, Roddy Doyle’s ‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ Two Pints is back for another round.

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…

Pull up a stool and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights.
