Written by Ron Fromstein, Two in the Coop is the story of Brad and Pete - two fledglings who must decide how to cope when their mother does not return to the nest as expected. Two in the Coop was originally mounted for the 2014 Stages/Magnetic North Theatre Festival and dubbed a 'touching and heartwarming piece of theatre' by The Chronicle Herald.
Through clever banter, bickering and bravado, the playwright explores children's fears of abandonment and death, sibling relationships and power dynamics, and the many anxieties of coming of age. Equal parts humorous and profound, the play tackles sensitive topics with ease and grace.
