Flashing between Honolulu and New York City, TWO OF US shines a spotlight on Mark David Chapman and the social and domestic pressures leading up to his assassination of John Lennon in December 1980.
A showdown between the real and the fantastic, TWO OF US addresses issues of economic hardship, gender equality, mental health, celebrity culture and gun violence.
Directed by Jerry Heymann
A laid off librarian wrestles with suicide methods that hurt the least, while his wife waits impatiently. But where does she wait? A play of two worlds, this elemental and affecting two-hander explores love, loss and the lives we inherit and impose on others.

Our Walk Through the World is a journey through the beauty, the absurdity, and the tragedy of modern life. A global voyage in an evening of six short plays.
In Tilly (An Introduction), a young woman films herself auditioning to become a surrogate mother. Colour-coded jelly beans prove the saving of one man’s career in Rules of Assortment, and a soccer coach introduces his latest acquisition to an assembled press in Our Prospects For The Coming Season. A son is reunited with his biological mother in Relinquish, while in The Viewing a real estate agent shows a couple around their dream home to a soundscape of gunfire and screaming. In Frisky & The Panda Man, a conservationist tries to come to terms with a lost love, a lost world and the last panda.
"A compelling, complicated and expansive story told succinctly in an evening" - Tribeca Trib, on Two of Us
