Tuesday 6 February, 6pm

ICI London is pleased to welcome Cristina Comencini to present her play

Due Partite / Two Rounds (Opening on 7 February at the Jermyn Street Theatre)

“Thursday we play cards. Best day of the week. Sunday, I dream of Thursday”.

Italy, 1960s. Claudia, Gabriella, Sofia, and Beatrice meet every week to play cards, discuss their marriages, and shuffle the deck of life. Fast forward thirty years, their daughters gather after a funeral, and the cycle repeats. But has anything changed?

Written by Oscar-nominee Cristina Comencini, a searing new translation from Aida Rocci brings the flavour, passion, and authenticity of a story that has captivated Italy for decades to the UK for the first time.

A Jermyn Street Theatre and Aslant Theatre Company Co-production. Pert of the Footprint Festival

Translated and directed by Aida Rocci. Produced by Antonia Georgieva
