"Germany calling! Germany calling! This is Radio Hamburg and here is William Joyce with a commentary on today’s news."

Double Cross creatively pitches two real-life Irishmen against each other in World War 2’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 the Field Day Theatre Company, Double Cross now takes on a new relevance in an era of heightened nationalism and ‘fake news’.
