The Two Character Play

Audio described in-house

A doctor once told me that we were the bravest people he knew. I said “Why, that’s absurd, my brother and I are terrified of our shadows.” And he said, “Yes, I know, and that’s why I admire your courage so much 


Fellow actors, and brother and sister, Felice and Clare have been on tour far too long.  Abandoned by the rest of their troupe, all that’s left is each other, an empty stage and an expectant audience.  They will have to adapt accordingly and perform the only appropriate work in their repertoire: The Two Character Play

Tennessee Williams, one of the world’s great dramatists, referred to his innovative psychological thriller, as ‘the very heart of my life’.  The Two Character Play returns to Hampstead for the first time since receiving its World Premiere here in 1967.

Event image: View from the balcony seats of a Theatre looking towards the stage. The wooden seats in the foreground have numbers on them, and a thin metal horizontal railing is beyond them. The stage is slightly out of focus except for two wooden dining chairs in the centre. The walls of the stage are exposed with brick, hanging fabric and wooden slates propped against the sides.
