Based on the 1988 movie, but now a musical! Lawrence Jameson works the French Riviera and makes his living by talking rich women out of their money. Freddy Benson is also a swindler preying on sympathetic women with stories about his grandmother’s failing health. The two men meet on a train and attempt to work together only to realize there is only room for one of them to operate in such a small town, so they make a bet to see who can extract $50,000 from a young heiress. The loser has to leave town. A hilarious battle of cons ensues.

Note: This play is not appropriate for children. There are scenes that contain strong language, suggestive dialogue and sexual innuendos, which may be inappropriate for young children/early teens.
