    More about Minus Two

    At the website of The National Theatre (2015) the following is written about Minus Two:

    "Paul and Julius are in-bed patients at the same hospital. They are both shortly to die. What do you do when it is already too late? Well, one runs off. In an absurd flight from the hospital, chained to drips and intravenous tubes we get to know two men who have in common that they are dying, but still have a lot left undone - and a lot they have yet to understand. Women, for instance.

    Minus Two is a poetic comedy touching the essence of being a human. Life, death, love and fear are interwoven in a seemingly simple plot. Through a number of humorous, beautiful and sad scenes it is revealed who Paul and Julius are. Both of them have skeletons in their closets and they have not always made the wisest of choices."
