Take In Those Two Weeks With Ian Salmon’s New Play At The Unity Theatre.

It’s the 1st of April 1989. By midnight on the 14th, the Miller family’s lives will have changed.

Those Two Weeks isn’t a play about Hillsborough. It’s a play about before. It’s a play about what life was like when it was normal and it’s a play about how difficult normal can be.

Joe’s looking at University and moving in with the girlfriend he thinks his family don’t know about, Peter has an ambition that seems at odds with his current lifestyle and Jacqui’s pregnant to the boyfriend she’s just dumped. Dave and Terri have no idea what’s happening in their family and finding out will see old issues resurface in their marriage.

There are two ways to look at the situation imposed on students graduating from University as we stumble headlong along the 21st Century road, one train of thought regarded by those who perpetuate the myth that education should be paid for in excess of debt by those receiving it and the more honest approach of those who understand that by burdening the individual with liability that far outweighs the gain, is utterly and irresponsibly wrong.

Be careful who you let in, that knock at the door as you hide in safety in a sanctuary, huddled together with strangers as mysterious lights and deadly rays fill the sky; when the world experiences a phenomena it cannot explain, not only does life’s companion Death come to take you by the hand, but the nagging thought that the mischievous, malicious and malign could call round to join in the fireworks is very much a certainty.

Straight up black comedy has the major issue of sometimes alienating those that dare take in a night of theatre; the unsuspecting audience not quite aware of what to expect, the references, the journey to a different place and one in which darkness prevails, the under culture of which many are drawn because it allows for a different kind of narrative to be explored.

The Cavern in Liverpool is a place of dreams. Even today, long since its golden age and the days in which the Beatles gave all who made their way to the venue a glimpse of the future. It has the power to bestow a certain magic on the thought of artists performing there and the memories of long since departed audiences, the thought of music history forever encased into the walls is one in which visitors clamber over themselves to see.
