A new comedy play inspired by the legendary Marx Brothers embarks on a nationwide tour this autumn and is stopping off at The Square Chapel Theatre, Halifax on Wednesday, November 18.
Just Some Theatre Company are the talented young bunch behind The Doppel Gang, a new comedy by Dominic Hedges which isl touring 12 venues.
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 rages 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?
Please note this production is only suitable for those over 15 years.
Tickets are £13 and £11 from 01422 349422. The show is 90 minutes long.
