Event description

“My best work since Streetcar… the heart of my life” - Tennessee Williams

Williams last full-length play,  written as a love-letter to his sister. An all-too-relevant piece for today, the play tells the story of a brother and a sister, both actors, in an unknown theatre in an unknown state, who have been deserted by the others in their touring theatre troupe. Without other options, the two perform their “Two Character Play,” extemporizing the parts not memorized, or not yet written. Therefore, the play-within-a-play becomes so engrossing both the siblings and the audience are unsure of where the play stops and real life takes over. In the end, unanswered questions remain but, with them, overtones of larger, deeper truths are brought to light. 

A group of local theatre artists, with the help of Providence Arts, Culture, and Tourism, have teamed up to mount this production, dedicated to the RI theatre community and in honor of local grassroots organizations and frontline workers who offer mental health aid.
