Jim Lehrer and the Theater and Its Double and Jim Lehrer's Double
Jim Lehrer, the legendary news anchor and Presidential debate moderator, is now retired and sitting alone of a gloomy evening in his cavernous DC suburban home, when his double, Jim Lehrer, the unsuccessful playwright, arrives home from the opening night of his first produced play.

The premiere of that play did not go well and Jim Lehrer II fled the theater, chased across dark fields and streams by a violent audience strangely angered by the staging of his script. He now must convince his twin their lives are in danger and to lock and barricade the front door to stem the imminent invasion. But something -- or someone -- keeps making odd noises from deep within the house.

Maher's comic-gothic horror tale relates the writings of Edgar Allan Poe and Antonin Artaud to the politics and theater of our day.

Starring Colm O'Reilly and Brian Shaw, who each played Jim Lehrer in the Theater Oobleck production of The Strangerer at one point or another.
