Tony and Emmy Award winner Amanda Plummer (Agnes of God) and Academy Award nominee Brad Dourif (One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest) met the press on Tuesday, May 7 to preview the upcoming off-Broadway production of Tennessee Williams' The Two-Character Play, in which they will star beginning June 10 at New World Stages. Gene David Kirk directs the rarely seen drama, which opens June 19.

The Two-Character Play weaves together reality and fantasy as a pair of actors, brother and sister, are abandoned by their troupe and forced to perform for an expectant audience. Kirk's production is dedicated to the memory of his mentor, Corin Redgrave, who introduced him to the drama, a work that exists in many different versions and was rewritten by Williams for over ten years.

The Two-Character Play is being produced by Robert Driemeyer, Jim A. Landé, and Morgan Sills, with general management by Brierpatch Productions (Laura Janik Cronin and Scott Newsome), casting by Wojcik-Seay (Scott Wojcik and Gayle Seay), and marketing by Ron Johnson.
