It’s a co-production, Abbey and Lyric Theatres, so maybe it’ll play in Belfast soon or maybe it’s alreadt played there(your neck of the woods I think?).That sounds really interesting. Bracken was as much of a fantasist and grifter in many ways as Joyce, but he was on the right side, wasn't he hah.
Written about 30 years ago by Thomas Kilroy....
One of his favourite themes is to place the non-conformist, the eponymous outsider, the stranger at the centre of events. In Double Cross it is the doppelgänger device. The double. Brendan Bracken, at the beginning of the war, is haunted by the Nazi propagandist Lord Haw, William Joyce. Joyce, at the end of the war in the bombed out radio station that has been his platform to the world, is haunted by the failure of his Nazi ideology to bring in a bright new fascist dawn.
