Following on from Last year’s hugely successful production of “9 to 5 “, AAODS return to the Borough Theatre with the deliciously funny musical comedy Dirty Rotten Scoundrels.
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is set against the backdrop of the French Riviera in the town of Beaumont-Sur-Mer, where casino culture is rife. Suave con-artist Lawrence Jamieson makes a living tricking rich ladies into giving him their money. When Freddy Benson arrives in town he challenges the status quo, and Lawrence’s position as chief con artist is threatened. As they decide the town isn’t big enough for the both of them, they make a bet. The first one to swindle $50,000 from their chosen “mark” wins. As the bet begins, they quickly realise they may have bitten off more than they can chew.
Sophisticated, suave and with a good dash of mischief, this hysterical comedy features a delightfully jazzy score, and has been described by critics as “a delightful throwback to the all-but-lost era of musical comedy”.
