Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, Savoy Theatre

Prepare to be transported to the luxurious lap of the French Riviera where the decadent world of sophisticated conman Lawrence Jameson is set to come crashing down with the arrival of larger-than-life Freddy Benson – a conman of an entirely different order.

Soon realising the town ain’t big enough for the both of them, the two find themselves going head to head in the con of their lives, pulling out all of the stops in a bid for the affections of millionaire soap heiress Christine Colgate.  Little do they know what they’ve let themselves in for.

Dirty Rotten Scoundrels will run at the Manchester Opera House from 12 February – 22 February, Aylesbury Waterside Theatre from 26 February – 1 March before arriving at the Savoy Theatre on 10 March 2014.
