A RashDash and Northern Stage co-production in association with Soho Theatre presents

Two Man Show

Men have all the power. John and Dan keep hearing people say that men have all the power, but it doesn’t feel like that to them.

Abbi and Helen are making a show about man and men. Because we all need to pull together now.

We want to talk about masculinity and patriarchy but the words that exist aren’t good enough. So there’s music and dance too. RashDash’s playful new show, all about gender and language where two women play two women playing two men, comes to HOME with the following awards and nominations from the 2016 Edinburgh Festival:

The Scotsman Fringe First – Winner

The Stage Award for Excellence in Acting – Winner

Three Weeks Editor’s Award – Winner

Total Theatre Award for Innovation and Playing with Form – Nominee

★★★★★ “An absolutely stunning creative work and an unforgettable performance.” – Arts Award Voice

★★★★ “A terrifically generous piece of writing… Two Man Show is messy, and maddening. And it needs to be.” – The Independent

★★★★ “This show is an argument-starter, a foot-stamper and a tit-bouncer – exhilarating, furious, polyphonous, frustrating, unabashed… [A] smart, potent and exhilaratingly physical attack on patriarchy.” – The Stage

★★★★ “A fizzing feminist odyssey… and tremendous fun.” – Time Out

“It works very well. … The whole show has this amazing energy.” – Quiet Man Dave

★★★★ “Perfect theatre for mulling over in the bar afterwards with friends and leaving you thinking for a long while after seeing it.” – North West End

“Eccentric, bold… An expressive production with fierce energy… Tackles the issues of gender head-on in this mad, but stimulating performance.” – Sincerely, Amy

“There are plenty of laughs along the way in this thought-provoking and diverting piece which doesn’t drag in its 70-minute run with no break… The performers thoroughly deserved their standing ovation.” – British Theatre Guide

“Everyone should go and see [Two Man Show], and have a jolly good think about it (and, instead of responding to it by trying to mentally *correct it*, should instead try thinking about what the things they see as “mistakes” might mean if they aren’t mistakes).” – Postcards From the Gods
