The Menier Chocolate Factory's record-breaking, sold out production of Patrick Marber's play, directed by Samuel West, transferred to Trafalgar Studios 1 for a West End season.
Following huge critical acclaim and a sold-out season at the Menier Chocolate Factory, DEALER'S CHOICE transfered to the Trafalgar Studios in London's West End for a strictly limited season from 6 December.
When a stranger joins the regular poker game at Stephen's restaurant, the stakes are high and winning has its price. An explosive and hilarious evening unfolds as father and son are pitted against each other and friendships are tested to breaking point.
Actor-Director Samuel West (former artistic director of the Crucible Theatre, Sheffield) returns to London to direct the first major London revival of Patrick Marber's debut play Dealer's Choice.
The play premiered at the National Theatre and received the 1995 Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy and the Writer's Guild Award for Best West End Play. Marber's other work includes Closer (both the stage play and the screenplay) and the screenplay for the Oscar nominated film Notes on a Scandal, starring Judi Dench and Cate Blanchett.
An extraordinary cast includes Samuel Barnett (The History Boys; Mrs Henderson Presents); Ross Boatman (8 series of London's Burning); Roger Lloyd Pack (Only Fools and Horses; The Vicar of Dibley; Harry Potter); Jay Simpson (Foyle's War; Primeval; Rome); Malcolm Sinclair (The History Boys; V for Vendetta; Casino Royale) and Stephen Wight (Don Juan in Soho).
