Every Last Trick archiveA charming politician and his glamorous new wife evoke a picture of marital bliss. Her first husband was a liar and a cheat. Her second is a different batch of chromosomes altogether. Not only is he chairman of the Feminist Forum but he clearly adores her. He says so, repeatedly, usually on Thursday nights when he goes out to 'stretch his legs'. Her suspicions are obviously hormonal. But when he resorts to illusion to maintain the delusion, well, there's a lot of confusion. If experience has taught her anything it's the need to fight fire with fire, lies with more lies and every last trick with pure magic... A comic marvel from the master of French farce, Georges Feydeau, Every Last Trick is an ingenious look at the game of infidelity and marriage, given fresh life by playwright Tamsin Oglesby (Really Old, Like 45, National Theatre; The Mouse And His Child, RSC). It is directed by Paul Hunter, uniting the comic talents of members of leading theatre companies Spymonkey (whose previous collaborations with Royal & Derngate include Oedipussy) and Told By An Idiot for the very first time.
