About the show

This new two-character play explores the story of a mixed-race couple through poetry, movement, and dramatic scenes. Part of Theater for the New City's Dream Up Festival. More…

From the show:

This show, using poetry, movement, and workout reenactments to tell the story of a mixed-race couple: Sam, a workaholic with a troubled childhood, and Taylor, an aspiring poet. The two bond over their interest in kickboxing and quickly begin a relationship. However, between Sam’s increasing responsibilities as an physical instructor and Taylor’s struggle for her work to be recognized, they begin to fight more and more often, and they must decide whether or not they are truly right for each other.

At its core, "Two is A Prime Number" is a universal story, told through movement and poetry, about what it means to fall in love, to fall out of love, to be in love, and the fundamental problem of intensely loving someone who may be completely wrong for you.

Tedious, Confusing, Slow, Excruciating, Disappointing

See it if You like character study type plays...when you get to look into the lives of the two characters, see how they tick, who they are...

Don't see it if you want to see an original story or one that is smoothly acted. This felt uncomfortable more than a few times as if the actors were lost.

Also This was a story that could have been interesting but just didn’t work... Read more Read less

Quirky, Disappointing, Confusing, Relevant, Slow

See it if you want to support new work by young artists. There is something here that could be further developed as it is a important issue.

Don't see it if you want to hear everything: voices directed away from audience get lost, recorded voices are low, noise from props drown dialogue. Editing!

Excruciating, Disappointing, Slow, Confusing, Banal

See it if You’re looking for a really boring way to spend an hour. Only an hour but seemed and eternity.

Don't see it if You’re not interested in lesbian relationships that are go no where.

Resonant, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting, Absorbing

See it if you appreciate plays regarding the stages/challenges of romantic relationships between intelligent, complicated Millennials, esp. lesbian

Don't see it if you cannot sit 1.5 hours without interval, prefer larger theatre or more complex set and costumes, or are disturbed by lesbian kissing/love

Also This show has great promise, and evidenced talented writing, acting, a... Read more Read less

Ambitious, Sparse, but, decent staging, Great acting, Intelligent, Slow

See it if You like a 65-70 minute long, 2-character, black box theatre, lesbian love story. Can co-workers ever fall in love? The acting was spot-on,

Don't see it if But, the script was lacking. I think they could’ve done more on the interracial dynamics of the relationship, I mean, it was highlighted in

Also The summary. I think the boxing 🥊/ gym aspects was cleverly showcased ... Read more Read less

Overrated, Indulgent, Excruciating, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if You want to support something with lesbian themes and content--no matter how poorly presented

Don't see it if You are the least bit hard of hearing; no effort was made to keep this intelligible and understood.

Unfinished, Romantic, Intense, Confusing

See it if want to support talented cast;believe that love is enough to tolerate another person and to accept someone with all of his/her problems

Don't see it if Dislike lesbian relationship,strange recorded voice,music that covers voices;connection between people who want but can't be together

Also Show listed as 1 hour 35 minutes was 1 hour only. 2 actresses had to p... Read more Read less

Cliched, Insipid, Fluffy, Slow, Banal

See it if you like stories about the mundanities of relationships.

Don't see it if you are expecting anything groundbreaking. This show is simply a slice of life about two women who are dating and the ups and downs.
