A staged Double

As I was "wandering around Petersburg yesterday" I came upon a notice for a new play based upon The Double at the Alexandrinsky Theatre there. The announcement has some interesting things to say about the story and about its relationship to Petersburg. It also mentions some other stage and film tellings of the story.

Great link Laurel - I'll buy you a ticket if you buy me one (inclusive of air fare, of course).:smileyhappy:

Wouldn't that be wonderful? We could make it part of the geek cruise of my dreams.
