OUT CRY

Genre: Drama
By Tennessee Williams

A play about theatre, writing, and acting
starring Mia Katigbak ("Dogeaters") and Eduardo Machado ("The Cook"),
directed by Thom Sesma

The National Asian American Theatre Company (NAATCO) presents a revival of the Tennessee Williams classic OUT CRY -- a play about theatre, writing, and acting -- with previews set to begin November 29, prior to an official press opening December 4 at Abingdon Theater (312 West 36th Street), starring Mia Katigbak (DOGEATERS) and Eduardo Machado (THE COOK). Thom Sesma directs.

In Tennessee Williams' OUT CRY, Mr. Machado and Ms. Katigbak portray Felice and Clare, two actors on tour, siblings who 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 them. 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.
