About the Show Less...

A compelling new play that takes a sharp look at how the media shapes our public and private lives. Read More >

Piers and Mick are at the sharp end of television news – professionals at seeking out and delivering the story. But when they are taken captive and forced to publicise the plight of a separatist group in a dramatic twist on ‘reality’ TV, the battle for hearts and minds begins in earnest. This funny and provocative new play centres around the lives of two couples in a world where deception and spin rule, where public and private agendas conflict and where there are always two sides to everything – including your deepest desires. Theatre, film and a talented cast of nine combine to make Take Two a compelling and highly original entertainment.
