Body Double

A Bear Pit Theatre Company Production

Body Double is a new play by local playwright Mark Carey.

Body Double is first and foremost a Thriller, a play that keeps its audience guessing, but it is also a play about pretence.  It is a drama about the different roles people assume in life, about the dangers of pretending to be someone we’re not.

In Body Double the actors are actors, the set is a set and the play being rehearsed mirrors the life of those rehearsing the play-within- the-play.

Eventually everyone starts to lose track of what is real and what is simply being ‘acted out’. So, when one of the characters tries to take on the life of another this leads, inevitably, to deadly consequences.
