Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Lawrence Jameson, a suave sophisticated English gentleman meets Freddy Benson, a young, quick witted American.
Two men with nothing in common, except one thing – they’re both conning the rich ladies of the French Riviera out of their money.
After a chance meeting on the train to Beaumont sur Mer, they attempt to work as a team until they realise that this town isn’t big enough for the two of them.
They soon embark on an elaborate ‘loser leaves town’ con, both with the sole purpose to be the first man to extract $50,000 from a young, unsuspecting American heiress.
With each man out for himself, things don’t go as smoothly as they planned!
Based on the 1988 cult classic movie starring Sir Michael Caine and Steve Martin, this production is full of hilarious gags, big musical numbers and unexpected twists, sure to get you laughing off your seats!
If you’re looking for a special treat, purchase a Premiere ticket for Monday 9th April and join the company for a post-show celebration in the Bar with pasties and wine!
