Fringe-first award winning piece Two Man Show comes to Manchester’s Royal Exchange Theatre, with a one-off performance to mark RashDash’s new Association Artist relationship with the Theatre.
Commissioned by Northern Stage and Soho Theatre, Two Man Show is a genre-defying Fringe-First award winning hit show about gender, language and humankind. It’s loud, raucous yet quiet and gentle, embracing the feminine, the masculine and everything in between.
Abbi Greenland and Helen Goalen are women playing women playing men in a show about how patriarchy is bad for everyone, and how being a man can be a dangerous, difficult and confusing act. They want to talk about masculinity and patriarchy but the words that exist aren’t good enough, so there’s music and dance too.
They are joined by Becky Wilkie; a musician, composer and performer who became the third member of the company in 2017.
RashDash make theatre combining movement, music and text, with works of radical feminist ideas, explored through an articulate physical style which they continue to reinvent. The theatre makers and performers have won three Fringe First Awards (2010,2011 and 2016) as well as The Tods Murray Awards for Best Book and Innovation in Musical Theatre, and have received nominations for Total Theatre and Off West End Awards.
