Boston Actors Theater begins its 10th season of new works with an examination of identity and self preservation. In Julian Olf's Twins
, red-neck gambler Ernie learns that his gay identical twin Jonathan has died. Ernie offers to impersonate the deceased to help his Lebanese widow Zaida get her green card. The scheme requires that he take a crash course in the life of a brother he hardly knew and learn the ins and outs of a highly unconventional marriage. Zaida finds Ernie repugnant and knows his scheme won't work, but she has her own reasons for wanting him to impersonate Jonathan. Over the course of two days, Ernie's many farcical encounters with people from his brother's life escalate into a high-stakes battle that brings Zaida and Ernie to the threshold of what looks like a promising relationship.
