The Two-Character Play by Tennessee Williams, off Broadway, 2013. (Above-the-Title Lead Producer)

 

Critically-acclaimed off Broadway revival starring Tony Award winner Amanda Plummer (Agnes of God, Pulp Fiction) and Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest), who united their white-hot talents for this highly anticipated production of what Tennessee Williams called "My most beautiful play since Streetcar."  

 

 

Reality and fantasy are interwoven with terrifying power as two actors on tour – brother and sister – find themselves deserted by their troupe. As they dip in and out of performance they find it difficult to differentiate themselves from their roles and reality from illusion.
