There is no better way to reconnect and immerse yourself back into the theatrical world than with We Are Kilter’s Theatre For Two. Join in on an interactive meeting between actor and audience member and create an escape from the world outside. The stories will be popping up across London in a specially designed travelling venue. Together, actor and audience will create unique playful interactions which celebrate the absurdity of human connection.

Mary Malone (The Jacket, BBC Arts; Alexis Gregory’s Safe, Hackney Empire) and Soho Theatre Rising Award winner, Ryan Lane (Told by an Idiot’s Let Me Play The Lion Too, The Barbican) will present newly commissioned micro-plays from some of the most exciting up-and-coming talent, Tabby Lamb, Macadie Amoroso, Ryan Lane, and Gabriella Leon.

Gluten Free Chocolate Crispy Caramel Mini Bite from Tabby Lamb (Since U Been Gone, HighTide) will be led by Mary Malone which will explore the need to be seen, heard and valued as humans. Mary Malone will also perform Reptile by Macadie Amoroso (Blue Beneath My Skin, Bunker Theatre) - a heart-warming piece about a cold-blooded companion in the good times and the bad.  

Director Ed Theakston comments, “Theatre For Two offers audiences the opportunity to get up close and personal with the power and immediacy of live theatre, telling four stories of friendship, compassion and the joy of human connection. On the week we are finally allowed to return to theatres, it feels like a rightfully celebratory moment. It also feels essential to remind ourselves of the importance of elevating underrepresented voices on our stages and in our audiences. We must continue to commit to rebuild better. Theatres are spaces for their communities; Theatre For Two invites everyone in to be a part of telling these joyful stories.”

Bookings can be made from individual theatre box offices. Tickets are available priced from £6 - £15 for one show and £25 - £45 for the cycle. Visit the We Are Kilter website for more information about the shows, dates and tickets.
