Characters in Brief: Cartwright’s TWO

Ebenezer Henry Brew-Riverson


TWO is a play written by Jim Cartwright an English dramatist. Cartwright designs TWO such that two actors can play all the characters. This paper is an analytical study which draws inferences based largely on descriptions of the setting and of the characters, and on the dialogues and monologues by the playwright in TWO.TWO like dramas do, holds up a mirror to life such that as citizens of life we cannot miss our self-semblances in the images that Cartwright so poignantly evokes. The paper concludes that Cartwright’s TWO is predominated by the theme of love and appears primarily, to be a commentary on the relevance of age, obesity, infidelity, incompatibility, denunciation, abuse and death in consensual, as well as romantic relationships.

Keywords: Cartwright, TWO, love, analytical, setting, dialogues, monologues
