It's been a slightly bumpy road to opening night for the two-actor production. Previews had originally been scheduled to commence June 10 but were delayed to allow for additional technical work. A knee injury sustained by actress Plummer also forced the cancellation of previews June 15-17.
The production, directed by Gene David Kirk, also stars Academy Award-nominated actor Brad Dourif ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest").
"Reality and fantasy are interwoven with terrifying power as two actors on tour-brother and sister-find themselves deserted by their troupe," according to press notes. "Faced by an audience expecting a performance, they enact The Two-Character Play. As they dip in and out of performance they find it difficult to differentiate themselves from their roles and reality from illusion."
The Two-Character Play is produced by Robert Driemeyer, Morgan Sills, Jim A. Landé, Al Parinello and the Somerled Charitable Foundation, in association with Robert Barry Fleming, Julio Montalvo, Ted Seifman/Jamie deRoy and Jan Warner, with general management by Brierpatch Productions (Laura Janik Cronin and Scott Newsome), casting by wojcik/seay casting (Scott Wojcik and Gayle Seay) and marketing by Ron Johnson, Jr.
Performances are Monday at 8 PM, Wednesday at 2 PM and 8 PM, Thursday and Friday at 8 PM, Saturday at 2:30 PM and 8 PM and Sunday at 3 PM.
