About The Doppelgänger (An International Farce)

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.

Please note that the role of Thomas/Jimmy will be played by Eric Slater in place of Rainn Wilson for the following performances : 4/22 @7:30pm, 4/24 @7:30pm, 5/6 @ 3pm and 7:30pm, 5/20 @ 3pm, and 5/22 @ 7:30pm.
