The dealer rules.
Dealer’s Choice is the début work of Patrick Marber, known in the Czech Republic for his plays Closer and Howard Katz, amongst others.
The employees of one London restaurant meet every Sunday in the restaurant basement for a round of poker. One day a mysterious man, who turns out to be a professional poker player, turns up. The restaurant owner invites him to the poker table. A tense round of poker starts where cards aren’t the only issue at stake.
The 1995 staging of the play, directed by the author, won the prestigious Evening Standard Award in theatre for Comedy of the Year.
