THE TWO-CHARACTER PLAY by Tennessee Williams—Felice and Clare, brother and sister, are two actors on tour who find themselves deserted by their troupe. Faced by an audience expecting a performance, they enact The Two-Character Play. The characters in the play within the play are psychologically damaged from witnessing the traumatic murder/suicide of their parents. They have remained recluses in the family home since the incident and are attempting to make contact with the outside world. As Felice and Clare dip in and out of performance they find it difficult to differentiate illusion from reality. Part Southern Gothic thriller, psychological drama and black comedy, The Two-Character Play is strikingly different from Williams’ best known plays; yet he personally referred to it as his “most beautiful play since Streetcar.”

Felice and Felice Understudy:
Male, 40s–early 50s. He has the quality of youth but is not young. He has a gaunt, almost emaciated, world-weary look. He is both a playwright and an actor. He is most likely an alcoholic. He is nervous and intense. In the play and the play within the play he is both the manipulator and caretaker of his sister.

The role of Clare has been CAST. Seeking Understudy Only:

Clare Understudy ONLY:
Female, 40s–early 50s. She has the quality of youth but is not young. She has a gaunt, almost emaciated, world-weary look. She is the female star of the company. She is a drug addict and perhaps schizophrenic. Her character in the play within the play has a childlike simplicity about her, the pure and sad preciousness of a little girl.
