WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE? Each person's own doppelgänger or double being, lives directly behind or within him or her. Some say it can?t be seen; some say it shows itself, causing mischief. Still others fear the sight of one?s own doppelgänger signals impending doom. Doppelgäng Productions enters its 2nd Season with the Namesake Festival, an exciting collection of 13 original short plays, each exploring on some level the theme of this mysterious creature from German mythology.
