One of Two

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.

Illustration. In the left foreground is half of a man's face, so that the right side of the face is cut off from the image. The face is of a white man (Jack) with short brown hair, and is wearing a white t-shirt. The one eyeball we can see is looking to the otherside of the image. On the otherside of the image is a Mr Potato Head dressed as Darth Vader. It stands on a small shelf, in a pile of toilet roll. Both of it's eyes and giving side eye back to Jack. The setting is a toilet, we can see a toilet flush handle behing Jack's shoulder partially covered in toilet roll that spills down from Darth Tater's feet. The background is slightly scuzzy white tiles. Text reads: A Jack Hunter production, is association with Birds of Paradise, supported by Queen Margaret University and The Mary Dick Award. One of Two by Jack Hunter, directed by Robert Softley Gale. Summerhall, venue 26, 11:45 - 12:45, 3rd - 28th Aug, £13 / £10.

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.
