The Two Character Play
|Category: Non-Equity Audition
How do you get people to talk about the ugly, the boring, the ordinary? Theatre L'Acadie's mission is to provoke thought, promote discussion, and influence change through the power of live theatre.
Theatre L'Acadie is looking for non AEA-actors for their upcoming production of The Two Character Play, by Tennessee Williams, directed by Kaitlin Romero. We would like to strongly encourage performers of all ethnicities, genders, sizes and abilities to submit.
About the play:
The Two Character Play depicts the codependent relationship between sibling actors in the made up town of Bethesda. Abandoned to perform their version of The Two Character Play on repeat for eternity, the characters becoming increasingly agitated with one another as they grapple with addiction and loss of everything they hold dearest to them.
