The Play House

The Playhouse is a humorous challenge to the belief that people are created in duplicate. Twins and mirrors play a key role in the film, which opens with a variety show sequence featuring Keaton as more than one character. Setting up a cleverly contrived plot instead of stunts requiring physical skill, Keaton also gets the audience thinking about the fictional structure of the narrative.
