House Of Games

9 Aug – 10 Sep 2016



Based On The Screenplay By David Mamet,
Stage Version By Richard Bean

 


“This is a confidence game, not because you give me your confidence, but because I give you mine.”

Psychoanalyst Margaret Ford, the author of a best-seller on compulsive behaviour, compromises her professional reputation when she offers to help one of her patients settle his gambling debts.

Drawn into the seedy world of Chicago poker clubs and seduced by a charismatic hustler, Margaret starts out on what she thinks is an academic study but finds herself caught up in complex and dangerous con.

Playwright Richard Bean (One Man, Two Guvnors, Harvest) has taken the cult film written and directed by David Mamet, which won the Best Film and Best Screenplay awards at the 1987 Venice Film Festival, and created a taut, funny and sexy noir-thriller about obsession and the lengths we go to get what we desire.

New Theatre is excited to be presenting this Australian premiere.
