What Is the Story of The Two-Character Play?
Brother-and-sister acting pair Clare and Felice find themselves abandoned by their troupe while on tour, with just a letter informing them that their fellow actors have accused them of being insane. Left alone in a theater, the duo decide to perform a two-character play that Felice has written for their expected audience. As the play goes on, Clare and Felice find that their script is blurring the lines between reality and illusion.

Critics' Reviews

"Director Gene David Kirk and his creative team have produced a work that should be seen by more than the 200 people that the New World Stages 5 can hold nightly... this one deserves to be seen by as many people as possible."

Review by Matthew Martello from EDGE New York

"In a time of cookie-cutter theater, the flamboyantly peculiar 'The Two-Character Play' stands out. It’s not for everyone, but those who do like it will like it very much indeed."

Review by Elisabeth Vincentelli from New York Post
