Dealer’s Choice

By Patrick Marber

From the writer of the smash-hit films Notes on a Scandal and Closer comes a beautifully constructed play about risk, status, gambling, men and self-identity.

In a London restaurant after closing time, six men meet every week to play poker. When one of the regulars can’t make it, the last dinner guest lurking in the restaurant volunteers to join the game, and as the stakes are raised, so too does the chance of boys becoming men, fathers becoming friends and losers just maybe getting a fresh start.

Dealer’s Choice is a bitterly funny and searing exploration of the real games that men play.

'Dealers Choice couldn’t have been done any better. It provides the perfect mix of actors, a strong script, wonderful direction and a perfect night of entertainment.'
Broadway Australia

'Craig Ilott’s excellent production of Dealer’s Choice catches not just the play’s humour and macho swagger... but also the fear... Highly recommended.'
