Thursday 29 September to Saturday 1 October 2011
Two takes place over one night, in a pub, in the North of England. Two people - man and wife - landlord and landlady - a dynamic double act, magnetic hosts of their pub, where they've 'seen it all'. Serving drinks two-by-two to the twosomes in their pub. Each has a story to tell, sometimes quirky, sometimes sad but it's always a tale you identify with. Interwoven with pint-pulling we meet Moth, a man drawn to every flame yet utterly dependent on Maudie; two elderly pensioners; Mrs Iger who simply adores big men; Roy who has Lesley completely under control and two Elvis fans watching TV.
Two takes clever twists and turns before reaching a powerful and unexpected denouement.

Coward & Cole
An evening of wit and romance from two of the greatest songwriters of the 20th Century featuring the inimitable Paul Laidlaw at the piano
York Musical Theatre Company
Thursday 27 October to Saturday 29 October 2011
Two illustrious legends of music, theatre and film, these stylish sophisticates, Noel Coward and Cole Porter, have entertained and charmed audiences the world over.
Coward, an English composer and playwright, is known for his sparkling wit, style and ingenuity in comedy. Cole is one of the most famous American composers whose elegant and sophisticated musicals dominated the Broadway stage in the 1930s and still do to this day. With often parallel careers, these two masterminds of the stage and screen met in the 1920s and remained friends for the rest of their lives.
York Musical Theatre Company brings a selection of Coward and Cole’s brilliance to the stage for an evening of de-lovely, delightful and delectable humour, music and pure entertainment.
Thoroughly Modern Millie
A University of York Musical Theatre Production
Happily Ever After Society
Thursday 3 November to Saturday 5 November 2011
Set in 1920s New York City, Thoroughly Modern Millie tells the tale of a young girl, Millie Dillmount, who has just arrived in the city in search of a new job, a new man and a new life.
It's a New York filled with intrigue and jazz - the play captures the feel of a time when social mores are changing forever and when the city is a dangerous place for a small town girl.
The stage musical is based upon the hit film of the 1960s but has been rewritten with a set of brilliant new songs and dance numbers.
