Two women play two women playing two men in a new show, coming soon to The Civic, that takes a look at masculinity and patriarchy.
Brought to you by the higly-acclaimed company RashDash – Abbi Greenland and Helen Goalen, with composer Beckie Wilkie – by tearing down and drawing attention to patriarchal norms, the performers show the audience how expressive women can be.
With such a weighty subject matter, the pair use humour as a much needed relief and naturally the Rash Dash duo’s confident personas shine through with witty comments in all the right places. From a mesmerising speech that kicks off the show, to emotive scenes between the two women, showcasing their abilities for capturing different characters, audiences will become immersed in their message.
A Fringe Festival favourite, the Two Man Show also features dance sequences that break up each scene. Both thought-provoking and powerful, these sequences will captivate you throughout.
It’s a show about male power and privilege, about gender and language. With Two Man Show, Rash Dash asks us how far we’ve moved on since the days of our older generations and whether we’ve found any of the answers.
In a show about language where the words just can’t say what needs to be said, we face the truth that many answers are yet to be discovered. Chaotic, powerful and energetic, Two Man Show will leave you with some important questions about language and power.
* Two Man Show is at The Civic on Saturday 4 February at 7.30pm. Tickets are £12 full price and £10 concessions. Recommended for 16+ as there is nudity. For more information and to book visitwww.barnsleycivic.co.uk or call the Box Office on 01226 327000.
