Play Synopsis:
Based on the 1988 movie. 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.
