SPRINGFIELD – M.A.S.S. Media Productions will present Tennessee William’s “The Two Character Play” for a three-day engagement this month.

In the play, two actors on tour, a brother and sister, find themselves deserted by their troupe in a decrepit “state theatre in a state unknown.” With no other options, they perform “The Two Character Play.” But reality and fantasy intertwine and blur as their situation becomes as dire as the one in the play.

The production stars Mitch Ladd and Rachel Hettrick as Felice and Clare, with the show directed by Erin Sullivan. Sullivan last directed “The Laramie Project”. Ladd was most recently seen in “The Laramie Project,” and “The Play that Goes Wrong.” Hettrick appeared in “Dead to the Last Drop” and will be in Theatre in the Park’s “Merry Wives of Windsor” this summer.

This production was suggested to M.A.S.S. Media Productions after Hettrick and Ladd appeared in a scene from the play at the UIS Student Directed Scenes, under the direction of Chip Deiss.

M.A.S.S. Media Productions will present “The Two Character Play” at the Hoogland Center for the Performing Arts in the Club Room. Shows are June 9 and 10 at 7:30 p.m. and June 11 at 2 p.m. Tickets are $20 and may be purchased on the Hoogland webpage.

The play contains adult language.
