The play “2 Can Play” is an exhilarating, fast paced comedy by Trevor Rhone.
Theatre goers will most likely know of Rhone’s work from “Smile Orange”, a stage play turned movie, which brought his writing and directing skills to the fore.
Marcia Muttoo and Michael McLaughlin, both well-known on the local stage, will undoubtedly have audiences in stitches in their role as Gloria and Jim.
The play opens at the Harquail on 20 October and will run for eight nights during two consecutive weekends. Tickets are $20 for adults. Parental discretion is advised.
“Gloria and Jim are fed up with the situation in Rollington Town,” reads an extract from Michael Manley’s introduction to the KET BOOKS publication. “So they work out a very complicated (and deliciously dishonest) scheme for getting permanent visas to the United States. This plot-within-a-plot calls for Gloria to “divorce” Jim and to marry a bona fide US citizen. Having acquired her own visa, she is then to “divorce” her new husband and “remarry” Jim. Unfortunately for Jim (fortunately for the audience) the break up in the couple’s chain of existence releases in Gloria a long pent-up need for personal development.”
The play is about love, and estrangement. It is about two human beings who nearly lose one another – but who eventually struggle back together. Ultimately, Gloria and Jim survive because they learn to communicate and, finally, to rediscover one another – not so much as they were, but as what they each can try to become.”
