Out Cry

Cyprus : Out Cry

Theater AntiLogos presents the rare masterpiece "Out Cry" by Tennessee Williams.

Tennessee Williams regarded "Out Cry" as his best and most personal play after "A Streetcar Named Desire", but there have been few who have agreed with him. Williams worked on the play and revised it incessantly over many years.

"Out Cry" is a strange work for Williams in that it is written in an experimental, minimalist style. The play is endlessly self-referential in that it is a play within a play and moves back and forth between the inset play and its setting. There are only two characters in the play: Felice, an aging playwright and his sister Clare, an actress. The play is set in a strange, cavernous theater in an unspecified locality. Felice and Clare discover that the acting company with which they have been touring has abandoned them on the more than plausible grounds that the two are insane. The two are left to put on a play by themselves. Clare wants to back out but Felice insists on going forward. They present a play that Felice has written that they have performed many times before titled "The Two Character Play", which was Williams' original title for the play that became "Out Cry". There is no audience in the house. The play goes forward anyway.
