"On one level, The Two of You is a glorious play about creating plays, about how all the technical issues encountered in writing the script collide with the growing reality of these fictional beings who absurdly begin acting as if they are actually flesh and blood; as if what happens to them really matters. On another level it is about the terror that lurks in the very sinew of our closest relationships, that wounded place where we fear we no longer matter, aren't sexy or challenging enough for our lover, or even worse, wonder if they feel they gave something important up to stay with us. That they live in that illogical, bitter, frozen land of regret."
