Rick Elice’s “Double Double” Playing at Williamstown

August 16th, 2006 reports that Double Double, a new thriller by Jersey Boys’ co-writer Rick Elice and Roger Rees, will have its debut at the Williamstown Theatre Festival’s Main Stage Aug. 16 for a stay through Aug. 27.

Elice and Rees co-wrote Double Double more than 20 years ago. The piece is also directed by Rees, whose past credits have been primarily as an actor and director.

The show is about “Phillipa James [who] picks up a bum from London’s Embankment and brings him to her late husband’s luxury flat. A purely business arrangement, as she explains to the down-and-out Duncan McFee, who happens to bear an uncanny resemblance to her dearly departed mate. In exchange for just a tad of impersonation, and the signing of some legal papers, Phillipa offers Duncan money, food and shelter. That’s the deal. But is it the whole truth? Can Duncan escape from this seductive trap with his bedraggled dignity intact?”
