The Two Character Play
One chilling morning, siblings, Felice and Clare find themselves deserted by their acting
troupe, left only with set pieces and each other's company to keep themselves warm.
As their situation becomes increasingly more desperate, the two resort to reliving one of
their "greatest" performances, The Two Character Play . Throughout the performance,
reality and fiction begin to blur, and the players begin to question not only themselves,
but their circumstances. The play, which Tennessee WIlliams calls, "…my most
beautiful play since Streetcar, and I've never stopped working on it….It is a cri de coeur,
but then all creative work,all life, in a sense is a cri de coeur."
