For theatre... online, non-professional, amateur



Winchester’s Chesil Theatre returns to the stage on 7th November 2020 at 7.45pm when a live performance of Jim Cartwright’s Two will be streamed direct into the homes of audience members. Tickets are now on sale from

Two, an award winning play, takes place in a pub during the course of one evening and involves just two actors playing fourteen different characters between them. Two was first performed in 1989 but it is not a period piece and rather has a timeless quality in encompassing a wide variety of people and situations; sometimes funny, sometimes sad, eventually poignant when the backstory of the husband and wife publicans is unveiled.

With pandemic restrictions in force for non-professional theatre, this show has been made possible by casting one household, real husband and wife actors Peter and Sarah Andrews, in the challenging roles. Sarah Andrews last appeared with Chesil Theatre in Tom Stoppard’s The Real Thing. Actor/director Peter Andrews’ roles have ranged from Badger in The Wind in the Willows to Andrew Wyke in Sleuth. Earlier this year Peter directed Ghosts by Henrik Ibsen, presented just before lockdown.

Chesil Theatre Chairman David Small said: “Live streaming Two on 7th November is as near as we can make it for an audience to enjoy a show. This is not archive material or a pre-recording. Our audience will be watching a one-off performance, albeit at a distance, but exactly as it’s happening on the Chesil Theatre stage.”

Tickets at £10 per household (or £5 per single person household) give access to the live transmission on the night and are available from The show can be experienced on most popular devices – tablet, smart TV, or laptop – and starts at 7.45pm (logon from 7.30pm.)
