In Freyda Thomas’s saucy and sexy reworking of Jean-Francois Regnard’s farce Le Joueur, every turn of the roulette wheel reveals naughty dalliances and scandalous situations. The odds are stacked against Valere: a compulsive gambler, he loves the beautiful and rich Angelique, but she refuses to marry him unless he abandons his wild lifestyle.
A riotous caper written in rapid-fire verse, The Gamester infuses its late-17th-century setting with ultramodern humor and delicious double entendres, enticing audiences to gamble on the fortunes of its high-rolling hero. Will Valere play his hand for love or vice? Will Angelique stay true? And what will become of the insatiable Madame Securite, the rich widow who refuses to stay out of Valere’s life…or his bed? Step right up and place your bets! With stakes this high, action this dizzying, and laughs that keep coming, The Gamester just can’t lose.
