A sensational return to the New York stage, Ms Plummer is all quicksilver shifts of theatrical style and emotional substance.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Closed 29 Sep 2013

The Two Character Play is a powerful play by American playwright Tennessee Williams in which two actors on tour are abandoned by their troupe.

Forced to carry out an impromptu performance, they find the lines between their characters and their own identity starting to blur with provocative, and often humorous, consequences. Williams' himself referred to the play as his "most beautiful play since Streetcar."

The play is a haunting look at the boundaries between fantasy and reality which exist in the theatre world, and indeed in the performing arts as a whole, and is one of Williams' most personal - and mystifying - works.

The Two Character Play will star Tony-winner Amanda Plummer alongside Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif.
