A Brand New Comedy Farce Starring Rainn Wilson

Exceptionally talented Chicagoan playwright Matthew-Lee Erlbach premieres a brand new work in his home city this Spring, bringing the riotous comedy of The Doppelganger (an international farce) to stage in conjunction with the Steppenwolf Theatre Company. Best known for his hilarious antics as Dwight Schrute on the American version of The Office, film and TV funnyman Rainn Wilson stars in this irreverent take on America's business relations with the rest of the world.

Together with an ensemble of the renowned company's finest, Wilson portrays wealthy British businessman Thomas Irdley, who suffers an untimely accident just before the signing of an African copper deal. Enter his American lookalike, the hapless Jimmy Peterson, also played by Wilson, who is thrust onto the stage of international resource politics to avert the impending crisis. In true farcical style, the boardroom con implodes to reveal the hands behind the puppet strings.
