Studio 42 will present a reading of the new political farce The Doppelgänger, written by Matthew-Lee Erlbach and directed by Moritz Von Stuelpnagel, on October 5 at 7pm at A.R.T/NY.

The new play is set in the Central African Republic and follows what happens when a kindergarten teacher gets thrust into a game of regional politics when his old copper magnate friend, whom he happens to look like, has a heart attack.

The cast features Brad Bellamy, Aimee Cucchiaro, Aaron Costa Ganis, Rachel Mewbron, Eugene Oh, Natalie Saibel, Carolyn Michelle Smith, and Nick Westrate.

Matthew-Lee Erlbach's most recent writing credits include Eager to Lose, a Burlesque in Rhyming Verse, which enjoyed an extended run off-Broadway at Ars Nova, and his solo piece, Handbook for an American Revolutionary, which he performed in a 2013 run at the Gym at Judson.
