Directed by Danny Mulheron
Everything is for the taking.
The Con was on at Circa Theatre from 26 October to 23 November, 2013.
This is it.
Stevie and Earle are about to pull off the most outrageous scam of their lives. The bait has been laid, the fish are biting, a jackpot awaits but what happens when true love walks in the door?
Is a conscience for a con artist their salvation? Their downfall? Or their greatest weapon?
In a world of emails promising you money, pyramid schemes, dodgy builders and politicians who only lie, the con artist is the fastest growing career path of the 21st Century.
Watch the magic of the con on stage. Can you believe your eyes? Can you trust what you feel?
Gavin McGibbon, writer of hit shows Hamlet Dies at the End and Holding On, makes his Circa debut with his most accomplished and daring piece of work yet. With renowned and ingenious director Danny Mulheron at the helm, this is sure to be one of the most talked about shows of the year.
