The Twins

Date: 22 Feb 2021

Two old school friends come back together 40 years after playing the twins in Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors, to rework it as a two-hander.

They get a little distracted along the way.

Their lives took different paths; they are now reunited, but who is playing who?

Are they who they say they are and should any of that matter? And once you’ve let go of your dreams, is there ever really any way back?

It’s about fathers and the shadows they leave, the labels we give to others and ourselves, and the burden and guilt these two friends carry as a result. It’s an achingly honest account that sees privilege and heroin joined at the hip.

The Twins are Greg Fleet and Ian Darling.

Fleet is an award-winning actor, comedian, playwright and author. Born in Michigan, USA, his family moved to Victoria when he was aged four. He studied at Geelong Grammar School for 12 years and then attended NIDA for a year before being expelled.

Darling is an award-winning documentary filmmaker. His Director credits include The Final QuarterPaul Kelly — Stories of MeIn the Company of ActorsThe OasisSuzy & the Simple ManAlone Across AustraliaWoodstock for Capitalists and Polly and Me.
