The New York Times calls The Two-Character Play “…a moving play about the convolution of madness and the fantasies of reality.” Reinhardt University’s theatre program takes this play to new heights in two performances, April 13 and 14, at 7:30 p.m. in the Cherokee Arts Center—downtown Canton.
The play is about two actors, a brother and sister, who meet in an empty playhouse—or is it?—where their theatre company is scheduled to perform that evening. But apparently the other actors have deserted them, so the two decide to perform their autobiographical Two-Character Play, extemporizing the parts not memorized or not yet written. Thus, the play-within-a-play begins, and it proves to be so compelling, and so deeply affecting, that soon both they and the audience are no longer sure as to where the play stops and real life takes over.
This most recent production from Reinhardt’s theatre program stars Trenn Carnes (right), a sophomore from Chatsworth, Ga., and Lauren Coleman (left), a junior from Woodstock, Ga.
