Comedy capers as The Doppel Gang comes to The Lantern

A new comedy play inspired by the legendary Marx Brothers embarks on a nationwide tour this autumn and is stopping off at The Lantern Theatre Liverpool on Sat 12 September.

Just Some Theatre Company are the talented young bunch behind The Doppel Gang, a new comedy by Dominic Hedges which will tour 12 venues between September and November.

The Doppel Gang 4 (2)The Doppel Gang combines the wild wit of iconic comedy giants The Marx Brothers – Groucho, Harpo and Chico – with generous helpings of British humour and humility.

War wages in Europe, while back in Blighty a group of entertainers battle to save a theatre from closure by masquerading as The Marx Brothers.

As the Blitz tears through London, a hopeless theatre manager, Lombard, persuades a desperate double act, Tommy and Cyril and not-so-convincing male impersonator Rachel to join him in an audacious stunt; one last roll of the dice to save his building and boost morale.

The curtain is about to rise, but so are the stakes as an unprecedented series of revelations leads to an exhilarating chain of events. Will anyone believe they are the real Marx Brothers?

Arts Council England have supported the development of The Doppel Gang script and also support the 2015 UK tour.
