Chicago Shakespeare presents: Two Pints

A WorldStage Production from Ireland
written by Roddy Doyle
directed by Caitríona McLaughlin

For the first time, Chicago Shakespeare’s Pub transforms into an immersive performance venue as two blokes share a pint in Two Pints, Booker Prize-winning Irish novelist Roddy Doyle’s intimate dialogue. Pull up a chair as two men have a drink and a chat in Chicago Shakespeare’s intimate lobby gathering spot.

Over the course of a few rounds, the blokes’ banter evolves into a wide-reaching and deeply revealing philosophy on life, loss, and vegetarianism. Roddy Doyle’s play on bar-stool musings has toured dozens of local pubs dotting the Irish countryside to great acclaim, and now lands in Chicago as the centerpiece of an American tour.
