DEALER'S CHOICE

DEALER'S CHOICE

September 2011

Patrick Marber's first play is a study in group psychosis. A poker school that meets every Sunday night in a restaurant basement is the arena that exposes the players' flaws and frailties.
In truth, everybody loses – their dependency on the game diminishes them as human beings, but they sweat and bleed comedy as well as a queasy pathos.
All too often in life we devote our energies to the pursuit of pain under the guise of gain. We are all mugs.
