Derby Theatre Trip

We are offering a trip to Derby Theatre on Saturday 24th March for visually impaired people, to see an audio-described matinée performance of Jim Cartwright’s classic comedy, ‘Two.’

Tickets for the play are £20, with free entrance for accompanying guides, and include a tactile tour of the stage and scenery before the performance at 2.30pm. The trip is open to everyone, no matter where you live in the county.

Sight Support Derbyshire staff will meet you in Derby, and there will be the opportunity for a light lunch at Derby Theatre restaurant before the tour and show. Guide dogs are welcome and we will assist anyone needing to get a bus or taxi home.

For more details, please contact Helen Jones or Heather Davidson at Sight Support Derbyshire on 01332 292262. Tickets will be offered on a first come, first served basis. Or email

‘Two’ is a hilarious, yet heart-breaking play presenting a slice of working-class life in a Northern local pub in the 1980s. With a constantly quarrelling landlord and landlady, and the dozen regulars pulling up a stool, all life is present in this pub.

Jim Cartwright has written extensively for stage, television and radio with his hugely successful plays, including ‘The Rise and Fall of Little Voice,’ performed at the Royal Court Theatre, National Theatre, the West End and on Broadway. They have won numerous awards, including the Olivier and Evening Standard awards.
