Background


Two's Company return to Southwark Playhouse with the first production in 40 years of James Saunders' mesmerising comedy.


Previous Two's Company productions include What the Women Did, The Cutting of the Cloth, The Fifth Column, and A Day by the Sea.


They are also producing Goodbye to All That on November 11th 2018.


'Bodies is a play which, when we have laughed at its wit, been held in the grip of its drama and revelled in the colours and layers of its language, still raises echo after echo in our minds and hearts.' Bernard Levin, Sunday Times


Two's Company are very grateful for support from The Boris Karloff Charitable Foundation, The John S. Cohen Foundation, and Ray Cooney.
