Poignant and humorous one-woman play "witty, wise, revealing, insightful, painful and totally engrossing..."

Play written by Lynne Adams (star of Guiding Light)

Starring Maria DeMitchell, Directed by Carey Eidel

“ It is a singularly agile, perceptive and formidable piece of theater writing …. The single greatest reason that theater cannot be killed is that performers like Adams, and plays like “Two Faced,” can make an audience understand that what happens each night is unique.” – Tom Woods, The Citizen

“This is a fascinating exploration of a woman’s illusions and delusions, marriage and divorce, sexuality and duality, motherhood and sisterhood, feminism and dynamism. It’s witty, wise, revealing, insightful, painful and totally engrossing. You couldn’t spend a better evening in the theater. ” – Park Labrea News

Originally written and performed by Lynne Adams and directed by Adams’ sister, actress Brooke Adams (Days of Heaven, Invasion of the Body Snatchers), and originally produced by Tony Shalhoub (Emmy Award Winner, ‘Monk’). Last produced by Auburn Public Theater in 2008 to critical acclaim, APT is bringing the show back, starring Maria DeMitchell. The poignant and humorous one woman play is a feminist work about an aging woman navigating divorce, loss, and re-entry into the job market.

Maria DeMitchell recently starred in APT’s 2018/19 season production of Harold Pinter’s “Betrayal” to great acclaim, directed by local theater legend Daniel Labeille. Her career has spanned more than three decades, including everything from dinner theater, industrial technical work, to children’s theater. She also spent close to thirty years at the Sterling Renaissance Festival doing interactive theater, including the role of Queen Elizabeth the First. Maria also performs in the Skaneateles Dickens Festival.

He is also an adjunct professor at Cayuga Community College where he teaches screenwriting, film production and acting for the camera.
