Stroud Theatre Festival: The Open Couple


Dario Fo’s Farcical Drama The Open Couple is a play of boundaries; whether that is within the characters’ own inhibitions, or the literal playing area of the stage in which the fourth wall is tested rigorously. The Open Couple mixes mind games, miscommunication and emotional blackmail with hilarious consequences in this draughty, open marriage.

Filled with heightened physical drama and sharp witty dialogue, this play will carry you through a bent reality of one couple’s fight for their own ideal marriage. Can either person win this game, without abiding by the rules?

Exeter based TicTac Theatre (which stands for Two Is Company, Three’s A Crowd Theatre) specialises in two-handers and multi-role plays.
This production is directed by Jacquie Crago; voice coach for National Theatre productions One Man Two Governors and Warhorse.

“A fantastic example of play and performers finding a perfect match” –
