The anticipated off-Broadway premiere of Tennessee Williams’ The Two-Character Play, featuring Tony winner Amanda Plummer and Oscar nominee Brad Dourif has delayed the start of its preview performances to allow for additional tech work at New World Stages. Originally scheduled to begin on June 10, performances of the rarely performed drama will now start on June 13 at the off-Broadway theater. Opening night is still scheduled for June 19.
The Two-Character Play tells the story of Clare (Plummer) and Felice (Dourif), two actors on tour who are also siblings. After finding themselves deserted by their troupe and faced with an audience expecting a performance, Clare and Felice enact The Two-Character Play. As they dip in and out of performance, they find it difficult to differentiate themselves from their roles and reality from illusion.
Directed by Gene David Kirk, The Two-Character Play features scenic design by Alice Walkling, costume design by Lara DeBruijn, sound design by Phillip Hewitt, lighting design by Jake Fine and fight choreography by Rick Sordelet.
