FOR TWO (£5.00 P/PERSON): £10
There is only one rule: everyone has to be who they say they are. DOUBLE is a troubling exercise in familiarity for two people sitting opposite each other on either side of a kitchen table, replicated in hundreds of rooms all across the world over 20 minutes. DOUBLE explores the Capgras delusion, a terrifying condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions.

OFFICIAL SELECTION 77TH VENICE FILM FESTIVAL 2020
The DARKFIELD RADIO experiences are accessed via a phone app on iOS and Android, and will only be available on certain days and times, just like a show. Taking part is simple – you buy a ticket, download the app, and enter your code – all you need is a phone and headphones. At the designated hour, you and your partner put on your headphones and your own home becomes the setting for the narrative to unfold, blurring the lines between the real and the imagined.
DARKFIELD RADIO is a new form of entertainment directly responding to the new age we are living in, immersing audiences in strange and curious worlds in their own home and bringing new meaning to the familiar spaces we inhabit.
DARKFIELD creates new innovative work at the forefront of technology and theatre, utilising binaural sound and sensory effects. Previous acclaimed pieces SEANCE, FLIGHT and COMA, sited in shipping containers, originally premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and have since toured the UK, Australia and Mexico. DARKFIELD has so far welcomed 170000+ audience members globally and with DARKFIELD RADIO, will now reach even larger audiences worldwide in their homes. The Darkfield Radio App is powered by Wiretapper, and funded by the Arts Council for England.
