In the world of The Gamblers there is no mercy. You play well or you lose everything.
"What a deceitful country this is.”
Gogol's classic play The Gamblers is a fast-paced comedy about a group of card-sharks who try to outwit each other. A masterpiece of dramatic suspense, this is a thrilling satire of greed and a comic celebration of cunning. This all-female adaptation is a story of women who gamble, hustle, cheat, drink, swear, sing and dance. And never apologise for it.
Six women, five players, one game - one of them will lose it all.
"Perhaps the most notable aspect of the company Greyscale is the astonishing array of talent involved." The List
