The play contains plenty of Williams’s trademark savage intensity and beautiful, poetic strangeness, and is a potent commentary on the easily blurred lines between fiction and reality.

NAATCO’s re-animation of this haunting coda evokes the proper tawdriness, especially Czerton Lim’s cluttered set

(James Hannaham: Village Voice)

It was Ms. Shaw’s voice that resounded clearly and took us though William’s painful and humorous look at fear…I do recommend this production to playwrights and directors. The play shows what a lot of Americans are faced with now

In Tennessee Williams’ OUT CRY, Felice and Clare, two actors on tour, siblings, are abandoned by their company in a decrepit theatre in an unknown place. Threatened by panic and fear these two actors perform “The Two-Character Play,” whose characters are named Felice and Clare, brother and sister, which may or may not be about the “real” Felice and Clare. OUT CRY was first presented in New York in 1973. Earlier versions of the work, which premiered in London in 1967, were presented abroad under the title THE TWO-CHARACTER PLAY.
