About The Two Character Play - Off Broadway

Show Info


Tony Award winner Amanda Plummer (Agnes of God, Pulp Fiction) and Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest) unite their white-hot talents for this highly anticipated production of Tennessee Williams’ The Two-Character Play.

Reality and fantasy are interwoven with terrifying power as two actors on tour – brother and sister – find themselves deserted by their troupe. Faced by an audience expecting a performance, they 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. Haunting, provocative, and often funny, The Two-Character Play is one of Tennessee Williams’ most personal – and mystifying – works.

"My most beautiful play since Streetcar" – Tennessee Williams

"The Two-Character Play
has a power that cuts deep."
-Ben Brantley, The New York Times

In a time of cookie-cutter theater, 'The Two-Character Play' stands out. Few can do cray-cray like these two."
-The New York Post

Amanda Plummer has lost none of the gifts that made her such an astonishment when she began her career. She is an ideal Williams performer."
-The New Yorker

"DELIGHTFULLY COMICAL. Consider how fortunate we are to have this under-valued play back with these players and this director."
