Opening is June 19.

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 creative team comprises Alice Walkling (scenic design and London costume design), Lara DeBruijn (New York costume design), Phillip Hewitt (sound design and London lighting design), Jake Fine (New York lighting design) and Rick Sordelet (fight choreography).

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.

Tickets are $72.50-$126.50 and are available for purchase via or by calling (212) 239-6200, as well as in person at the New World Stages box office (340 West 50th Street).
