Two-Character Play at the Jermyn Street Theatre 26 Oct
Two-Character Play , by Tennessee Williams, at the Jermyn Street Theatre, an off West End venue near Piccadilly, central London, from 26 Oct to 20 Nov 2010.
Directed by Gene David Kirk, designed by Alice Walkling, lighting by Phil Hewitt, sound by Phil Hewitt. Starring Catherine Cusack (Clare) and Paul McEwan (Felice).
Felice and Clare are two actors on tour, they are also brother and sister. They find themselves deserted by their acting troupe in a decrepit 'state theatre in an unknown state'. Faced by an audience expecting a performance, they enact The Two-Character Play, an illusion within an illusion. ( The play is partially autobiographical. Clare is loosely based on William’s sister Rose, and Felice on Williams himself. )
The Two-Character Play is in memory of Corin Redgrave. The Gala Night will be on Thursday 18 November at 7.30pm in aid of Caged Prisoners and Outside Edge, charities that were supported by Corin Redgrave and Kika Markham. Tickets on this night will include drinks in the interval and a post show drinks and canape reception with the cast.
