Gwen has just been released from the home where she has been under psychiatric care and is trying to reestablish her life, her identity and her relationship with her estranged young children. After the social worker who has provided emotional support during the last year leaves her dingy apartment, a disturbing side of Gwen appears as a separate character. In a tour de force for two actresses, Gwen's alter ego torments and goads her toward self destruction. Spiced with dark humor, this psychological drama is a captivating evening of theatre.
"A powerful work that rivets viewers to their seats.... Suspenseful drama at its finest.... Emotions erupt like Mount Vesuvius." - Chagrin Herald Sun.
GWEN AND GWEN was first presented at the Mapleleaf Theatre in Cleveland, Ohio in November, 1988. It was directed by Steve Ritchey.
