Con men go head to head in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Kenilworth's Priory Theatre

Ian Hughes 9th Apr, 2018

CON MEN go head to head in Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Kenilworth’s Priory Theatre.

The musical comedy focuses on two con men living on the French Riviera. The first is the suave and sophisticated Lawrence Jameson who makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. The other, a small-time crook named Freddy Benson, who, more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with his fabricated stories.

After meeting in a cafe, they unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this small French town is not big enough for the two of them.

They agree on a settlement – the first one to extract $50,000 from a young American female target wins and the other must leave town.

The production runs from April 18 to 28.

Scoundrels – Lawrence Jameson as Alex Holmes; Christine Colgate plays Lisa Clifford, and Casey McKernan is Freddy Benson.
