“Work, business and pleasure, all pulled behind the bar”
The Landlord and Landlady have lived their lives in the pub, where all of humankind passes through and everybody - young or old, happy or sad - has a story to share. On this busy night, the tills are singing but it’s their marriage that might be on the rocks. Pull up a stool and join the regulars amongst the humour and heartbreak that’s found at the bottom of a glass.
Written by award-winning playwright Jim Cartwright (The Rise and Fall of Little Voice, Road), two actors play 14 characters in this mesmerising, bittersweet comedy set in a Northern local.
