“Roddy Doyle is one of Ireland’s greatest writers.” – The Guardian

Founded as a national theatre for Ireland by visionaries W.B. Yeats and Lady Gregory in 1904, the Abbey Theatre Ireland has always been an arena for art and ideas with its goal “to bring upon the stage the deeper emotions of Ireland.”

Two men meet for a pint. Pull up a stool and listen in as they chew the fat and set the world to rights. Irish novelist, dramatist, and screenwriter Roddy Doyle’s hilarious and provocative Two Pints started as a conversation on Facebook. Now it’s a play coming to Richmond’s favorite pub, Rare Olde Times. Known for his “tender portrayals of [Irish] working class families” (The Guardian), Doyle’s work has been awarded a Man Booker Prize, an Irish PEN Award, and a BAFTA Award — Best Adapted Screenplay for The Commitments.
