4.1 (7) · Contemporary Drama

Innovative psychological thriller by Tennessee Williams

Review this show


Fellow actors, and brother and sister, Felice and Clare have been on tour far too long. Abandoned by the rest of their troupe, all that’s left is each other, an empty stage and an expectant audience. They will have to adapt accordingly and perform the only appropriate work in their repertoire: The Two Character Play…

Tennessee Williams, one of the world’s great dramatists, referred to his innovative psychological thriller, as ‘my most beautiful play since A Streetcar Named Desire, the very heart of my life’. The Two Character Play returns to Hampstead for the first time since receiving its World Premiere here in 1967.

Sam Yates also makes a highly anticipated return to Hampstead following his Olivier-nominated production, The Phlebotomist. His West End credits include Glengarry Glen Ross starring Christian Slater and The Starry Messenger starring Matthew Broderick.

In the event of The Two Character Play being postponed, you can chose between a full refund or credit to be used for any show at Hampstead.
