About the Show/Event
Information for The Double Dealer at Orange Tree Theatre, Outer London (Play). Tho' marriage makes man and wife one flesh, it leaves 'em still two fools. A house party on a sultry autumn evening. A marriage has been arranged between Cynthia and Mellefont. All should be plain sailing, but the young couple must contend with the jealousies, vanities and vagaries of a host of brilliantly drawn comic characters. Above all they must overcome the Machiavellian machinations of Maskwell - the eponymous Double Dealer. In a world of artifice and guile, how are we to judge whose behaviour is beyond reproach?
Performers Jonathan Broadbent (Brisk/Say Grace), Simon Chandler (Sir Paul), Jonathan Coy (Lord Touchwood), Lloyd Everitt (Mellefont), Edward Macliam (Maskwell), Dharmesh Patel (Careless), Jenny Rainsford (Lady Plyant), Paul Reid (Lord Froth), Hannah Stokely (Lady Froth), Zoe Waites (Cynthia/Lady Touchwood).
