Double Double
Written by Eric Elice and Roger Rees
Directed by Keith Jarman
5 – 10 June 1989

Phillipa James has plucked down and out Duncan McFee from London’s Embankment and installed him in a luxury apartment, purely as a business arrangement based on Duncan’s uncanny resemblance to her late husband, Richard, who unfortunately died just prior to his forty fifth birthday when he would inherit a million pounds. All Duncan has to do for a half share is impersonate Richard at a birthday party and convince the family solicitor that Richard is alive, well and still married to Phillipa. But Phillipa didn’t expect to fall in love with Duncan and has she told him the whole truth? A stunning climax leaves the audience gasping.
