Theater

The Two-Character Play

When: Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Continues through June 4 2016

The Midnight Company's production of The Two-Character Play was well-received at the inaugural Tennessee Williams Festival -- so much so that the company has extended the run. The play revolves around Felice and his sister Clare, both actors. They're stuck in an unnamed theater, abandoned by the company they were traveling with because of their mental instability. Felice is trying to finish his latest script, The Two-Character Play, which is about a brother and sister trapped in a tumble-down Southern mansion after the murder-suicide of their parents. As you might imagine, the lives of the two actors and their characters intersect and become entangled before the night is over. Tennessee Williams spent more than a decade writing The Two-Character Play, which is an experimental, meta-textual exploration of his frequent themes of family and stage. Michelle Hand and Joe Hanrahan star in the production, which is performed at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (May 27 to June 4) at Winter Opera's building (2322 Marconi Avenue; www.midnightcompany.com). Tickets are $15.
