Summer Theatre: Double Double

Phillipa James has picked up down-and-out Duncan McFee from London’s Embankment and brought him to her husband’s luxury apartment. It is, she explains, purely a business arrangement based on Duncan’s uncanny resemblance to her husband Richard, unfortunately deceased a few weeks prior to his forty-fifth birthday when he should inherit a million pound trust fund.

Now with only a week to go to the birthday all Duncan has to do for a half-share in the fund is impersonate Richard at a party and convince the family solicitor that Richard is alive and well and married to Phillipa. But Phillipa hasn’t reckoned on falling in love with Duncan and has she told him the whole truth?
