Two-Headed, according to production notes, "depicts forty years in the lives of two Utah women in the late 1800's. Their friendship is traced as each finds her place in an intolerant, patriarchal Mormon society and the polygamy it espouses. Julie Jensen defines the term 'two-headed' as the act of keeping secrets and denying truths."
Marc Geller will direct Corinna May and Diane Prusha for the production. Two-Headed marks the Berkshire Theatre Festival debut for both actresses. Two-Headed will play BTF's Unicorn Theatre July 25–Aug. 18.
The creative team includes scenic designer Aaron P. Mastin, costume designer Dennis Ballard, lighting designer Frank DenDanto III, composer Daniel Denver and sound designer Craig Kaufman.
Playwright Julie Jenson has won numerous awards, including the Kennedy Center Award for New American Plays (White Money), the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Work (The Lost Vegas Series) and the LA Weekly Award for Best New Play (Two-Headed). In 2000, Two-Headed was included in the volume "Best Plays by Women."
