The Doppelgänger (an international farce)

The Doppelgänger (an international farce)

Culturadar Find Culturadar Find

The highly anticipated world premiere. A hilarious farce that exposes the personal greed behind first-world exploitation. 

In the dangerous back channels of international resource politics, a wealthy British businessman suffers an untimely accident just before a critical African copper deal is signed. So when his unwitting (and witless) American doppelgänger is thrust into negotiations to avert intercontinental disaster, chaos erupts, leaving us wondering: whose side are we supposed to be on... and who will save Africa?? This new American farce is a hilarious, irreverent and timely look at the back-room deals that shape our world and the unlikely cast of characters who make them. 

The Doppelgänger is a bold comedy that blends slapstick with political bite, and bawdy wordplay with incisive commentary on America's loaded position on the global stage. Directed by ensemble member Tina Landau, an ensemble member since 1997, Landau's work includes directing Broadway's The Spongebob Musical , Tracy Letts's Superior Donuts and Tarell Alvin McCraney's The Brother/Sister Plays.
