Meditations on death and dying weave seamlessly with hilarious tales to present an extraordinarily rich tapestry…” -The Arts Review

The Abbey Theatre, renowned as the national theatre of Ireland, takes over the Red Room at Chapter One: the modern local, . Pull up a bar stool, order a pint and prepare yourself for an exclusive and intimate theatrical experience.
After sold-out tours in pubs across Ireland and the UK, Roddy Doyle’s ‘achingly, breathtakingly funny’ Two Pints heads to the US.
It started as Facebook conversation. Now it’s a play at a pub. Two Pints is a hilarious, bittersweet work from Dublin’s celebrated Abbey Theatre and Roddy Doyle, the poet laureate of Ireland’s working class behind The Commitments, The Snapper, and The Van.
Two men meet for a pint. Over the course of a few rounds, the blokes’ innocuous banter evolves into a wide-reaching and deeply revealing philosophy on life, loss, vegetarianism, their Da’s, death, Nigella, North Korea, the afterlife…
Two Pints brilliantly blends the intelligence and existential insights of Samuel Beckett with the humor and charm of a barstool philosopher.
