Two Billion Beats: sibling loyalty is tested in this meaty but speechy drama

  • You have to hand it to a theatre (an unfunded one too) that can programme, within a few months, a superb revival of Bernard Shaw’s Arms and the Man, an imminent revival of Duet for One, the 1980 Tom Kempinksi two-hander inspired by the life of Jacqueline du Pré, with Somerset Maugham and Shakespeare on the horizon too. That’s a rich mix, and the Orange Tree diversifies it further by bringing back a play first seen online, mid-pandemic in 2021, set in the present-day.
