About Double Feature

“Art and Eros are always superimposed, don’t you find? You cannot separate the two: the model naked in supplication before the artist; the artist exposing himself in trust. The beast of creation is always erect.”

1964/1967. In a rented cottage in Suffolk, a brilliant young film director, deep in making his magnum opus, confronts the ageing star that the studio has imposed on him. Vincent Price is about to walk out on the film, and Michael Reeves’ career hangs by a thread. Across the world, in a strange simulacrum of a Suffolk cottage created on a Hollywood lot, a great director and his star are engaged in a very different sort of power-game, as Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hedren take time off from making Marnie for one final confrontation.

John Logan is an American playwright and screenwriter. His other plays include the Tony Award-winning play Red (West End and Broadway), Peter and Alice (West End) and the book for Moulin Rouge (West End, Broadway, International); his screenplays include The Aviator, Skyfall and Gladiator.

Jonathan Kent returns to Hampstead where his previous productions include Good People, The Slaves of Solitude and The Forest.

Don’t see it if you are expecting another RED. This play has its own commentary on art and resilience but it's more a retelling of specific anecdote

Thought-provoking, Great writing, Absorbing, Intense, Great acting

See it if you like a uniquely staged play; want to see Vincent Price and Alfred Hitchcock on stage at the same time! For Jonathan Hyde's performance.

Don’t see it if you find discussions of trauma painful. Michael Reeves describes mental health struggles, Tippi Hedren has tortured relationship with Hitch
