About the Show/Event

The Two Character Play
Information for The Two Character Play at Hampstead Theatre, Inner London (Play). Fellow actors, brother and sister Felice and Clare have been on tour too long: every town looks increasingly the same until they feel they could be anywhere... Abandoned by the rest of the acting company, but faced with an audience expecting a performance, they must enact The Two Character Play. But as their gripping ?play within a play' unfolds, the line between reality and illusion becomes increasingly unclear; as their characters reach out to the outside world, the actors' isolation and uncertainty grows... One of the foremost playwrights of the twentieth-century, Tennessee Williams spent over ten years writing The Two Character Play, an innovative, partly autobiographical work which he called ‘My most beautiful play since Streetcar, the very heart of my life'. It returns to Hampstead Theatre for the first time in over fifty years, having received its World Premiere there in 1967.
