Description Dealer's Choice is a darkly intelligent comedy about men's bravado, the human search for connection, and one furtive and perilous game
of poker. Expertly crafted by playwright Patrick Marber (Closer, Notes on a Scandal) the dialogue in Dealer's Choice crackles with scalding wit,
building scene upon scene into a desperate crescendo of suspense. This play won the Writers' Guild Award for est West End Play
and the Evening Standard Award for Best Comedy.
