Dealer’s Choice By Patrick Marber


IT’S ABOUT GUTS, IT’S ABOUT RISK, IT’S ABOUT PASSION 

Family, friendship and honour are tested in Patrick Marber‘s (Closer, Notes On A Scandal) brilliantly funny story of male camaraderie and obsession, set in the gritty world of amateur poker.

When first staged at the National Theatre in 1995 the play won the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy. This new production is directed by Michael Longhurst, who recently directed Constellations in the West End, winning the Evening Standard Award for Best Play and receiving four Olivier nominations.

Hear from the characters in Dealer’s Choice: Carl, Frankie, Ash, Stephen, Mugsy and Sweeney.

“PATRICK MARBER’S RAZOR-SHARP DISSECTION OF POKER AS LIFE… A PLAY THAT COMES OUT SWINGING AND NEVER LETS UP – A WITTY, WISECRACKING DRAMA THAT RELENTLESSLY PROBES THE TORTURED SOULS OF ITS SIX VERY DISTINCTIVE… CHARACTERS” TIME OUT NEW YORK

“AN EXCEPTIONALLY ACCOMPLISHED FIRST PLAY… THOUGH I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT POKER, I TESTIFY TO THE COMPULSIVE GRIP THIS PLAY EXERTS AND TO THE ACCUMULATION OF MEANINGS IT IGNITES IN YOUR HEAD” FINANCIAL TIMES
