THE TWO-CHARACTER PLAY
by Tennessee Williams, directed by Gene David Kirk. Reality and fantasy are interwoven with terrifying power as two actors on tour – brother and sister – find themselves deserted by the troupe in a decrepit state theatre in an unknown state. Faced (perhaps) by an audience expecting a performance, they enact The Two-Character Play – an illusion within an illusion, and outcry from isolation, panic and fear.
