Tony and Emmy winner Amanda Plummer will return to the New York stage in the Off-Broadway premiere of Tennessee Williams' rarely-seen The Two-Character Play at New World Stages.

The production, directed by Gene David Kirk, will also star Academy Award-nominated actor Brad Dourif ("One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest"). Previews will begin June 10 with an official opening June 19.

"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 being produced by Robert Driemeyer, Jim A. Landé and Morgan Sills, with general management by Brierpatch Productions (Laura Janik Cronin & Scott Newsome), casting by wojcik/seay casting (Scott Wojcik & Gayle Seay) and marketing by Ron Johnson.

Remaining creative team members and ticket information will be announced at a later date.
