BTC ARTS SHED, GOLDEN SQUARE
Flared jeans, mini skirts and kipper ties. The 1970s. A time when things were a little more relaxed, politically, socially and maybe even romantically!
About the Show
Two and Two Make Sex is a British farce written by Leslie Darbon and Richard Harris that explores infidelity, secrecy and a whole lot of hilarity. Richard Harris is known primarily for his television writing with episodes of The Avengers, The Saint and The Sweeney under his belt, generally focusing on the genres of crime and detective work. Similar to Richard, Leslie Darbon had quite the stint writing for television with episodes of Crossroads, Jason King and Department S behind her before moving on to the stage. Once Richard and Leslie began writing, it just ran away from them. Writing both ‘Two and Two Make Sex’ and ‘Who Goes Bare?’ which saw British audiences in stitches before it took off around the world.
Set in 1973, we follow two couples who couldn’t be more different but who are having similar issues. Nick and Jane share a rickety bedsitter and are unsure about how their relationship is defined whereas George and Clare are not-so-happily married with George looking to ‘spice up his life’ a little. To inject that little bit of excitement, he finds the young and attractive Jane whilst Clare is treated by a new and handsome psychiatrist Nick.
With perfect timing, hilarious confusion and a good bit of British humour, audiences will be transported back to 1973 to cringe, laugh and cry along with Two and Two Make Sex.
