HUSBAND and wife actors Kieran Buckeridge and Ella Vale are to play a couple on stage in The Dukes’ 40th anniversary production of Two.

The Jim Cartwright modern classic drama based in a northern bar in 1989 will see The Dukes transform one of its theatre spaces – The Round – into a fully operational pub from October 6-29.

And performing both sides of the bar will be Kieran Buckeridge, fresh from his success as Merlin in The Dukes’ summer outdoor production, joined by his wife, Ella Vale.

As well as playing landlord and landlady of Lancaster’s newest – and most temporary pub – Kieran and Ella will also take on all the characters who visit their bar.

They share their ups and downs with the audience who can then enjoy a drink on the stage set.

Two opens The Dukes Pub Season which celebrates 40 years since the Lancaster theatre and cinema was launched in the autumn of 1971.

Tickets for Two can be booked at The Dukes box office on 01524 598500 or www.dukes-lancaster.org.
