A Jack Hunter production
In association with Birds of Paradise
Supported by Queen Margaret University and Summerhall’s Mary Dick Award
Trapped in the bathroom with an evil tattie, Jack wrestles with the reality of living alone. Jack Hunter’s inspiring* debut comedy is full of heart and a half empty bag of Weetos.
A true tale of twins growing up with Cerebral Palsy. Jump aboard the “strugglebus” with Jack as he steers through the intersectionality of disability, whilst honking at societal attitudes and Eddie Redmayne’s career choices.
*Inspiration not guaranteed
One of Two is an absurdly funny show that focuses on the significance of human connection, and the integral effect it can have on our lives. Centered around the unique bond he shares with his twin sister Bec, Jack embarks upon a journey of self discovery from prenatal to postnatal, to find his sole place in the universe.
Although personal at its core this show sets to playfully question common perceptions and misconceptions about disability within today’s “alien” non disabled world.
🕛 11:45am – 12:45pm

💷 £13 / £10
