Reality and fantasy are interwoven with terrifying power as two actors on tour––brother and sister––find themselves deserted by the troupe in a decrepit “state theatre in an unknown state.” Faced (perhaps) by an audience expecting a performance, they enact “The Two-Character Play”––an illusion within an illusion, an “out cry” from isolation, panic, and fear. “I think it is my most beautiful play since Streetcar,” Tennessee Williams said, “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.”

*All audience must provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination.


“The Two Character Play (Out Cry)” is presented by arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. “The Two Character Play (Out Cry)” is presented by special arrangement with the University of the South, Sewanee, Tennesse.

This program is made possible by the New York City Artist Corps. 
Support is provided through the City Artist Corps Grants program, presented by The New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs (DCLA), with support from the Mayor’s Office of Media and Entertainment (MOME) as well as Queens Theatre.
