Scot Whitney, director of Harlequin's The Understudy, does his best to explain the plot: "It's about a three-hour, Broadway-smash, Kafka play starring two action-movie stars: one who makes $25 million a picture and one who makes $2 million a picture. The big star, Bruce, we never meet. Jake (Jason Haws) is the second-tier movie star, and he plays the standard Kafka character the whole world screws with...Bruce could get another picture at any time, and it's a (union) show so they have to have an understudy. The plan is Jake will move into Bruce's role, and they're bringing in an understudy to play Jake's role...Things just crumble around them. It's so funny."
