HP Community Theatre: Dirty Rotten Scoundrels
Dirty Rotten Scoundrels is a musical adaptation of the 1988 comedy film about two conmen — one elegant and one slovenly — who scheme to bilk rich women out of their money on the French Riviera. Lawrence Jameson makes his lavish living by talking rich ladies out of their money. Freddy Benson more humbly swindles women by waking their compassion with fabricated stories about his grandmother’s failing health. After meeting on a train, they attempt to work together, only to find that this small French town isn’t big enough for the two of them.
