Double Cross creatively pitches two real-life Irishmen against each other in World War Two’s propaganda battle, Brendan Bracken the British Minister for Information and Nazi broadcaster William Joyce, better known as Lord Haw-Haw. Both parts are played by the same actor.
Originally performed in 1986 by Field Day Theatre Company, Double Cross now takes on a new relevance in an era of heightened nationalism and ‘fake news’.
