‘The Two Character Play’
“The Two Character Play” is a rarely produced piece by Tennessee Williams in which two actors — brother and sister Felice and Clare — arrive on a deserted theater stage. They have been abandoned by their troupe and thus begin to enact “The Two Character Play” alone. Soon both the actors and audience are treading the fine line between what is real and what is illusion.
