News: Hampstead Theatre announces cast for Tennessee Williams thriller

Hampstead Theatre have announced the cast for Tennessee Williams’ psychological thriller The Two Character Play. Directed by Sam Yates, the production will arrive at the venue from 17 July to 28 August.

Cast includes Kate O’Flynn (Olivier Award-nominee for The Glass Menagerie) as Clare and Zubin Varla (The El Train, Fun Home) as Felice, who are set to perform the play which first premiered at Hampstead Theatre in 1967. 

Sam Yates will direct The Two Character Play, and makes a highly-anticipated return to Hampstead Theatre following an Olivier Award-nominated and critically acclaimed production of The Phlebotomist in 2019.

The production will be designed by Rosanna Vize, with lighting design by Lee Curran, sound design by Dan Balfour, video design by Akhila Krishnan, movement direction by Malik Nashad Sharpe and assistant direction from Lizzie Manwaring.

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…
