Darkfield Radio have recently released two immersive radio plays and we were lucky enough to sample the ‘Double’ episode.
This 20 minute experience is designed for two people, either in person or over video call such as Skype (although if possible we would recommend doing this in person).
This is a troubling exercise in familiarity for two people sitting opposite each other on either side of a kitchen table.
DOUBLE explores the Capgras delusion, a terrifying condition in which the sufferer is convinced that a loved one has been replaced by an exact replica with malign intentions.
Wearing earphones and with your eyes shut it is very easy to get lost in Double, which at times has moments of spine-tingling terror. The most surprising thing about this experience is just how short it is, as it feels like you have been listening an hour by the time it concludes.
Safe to say Double may infuse your house with paranoia and you may not look at your significant other or roommate the same after this.
Darkfield Radio: Double is available now at £10 per experience.
