Dirty Rotten Scoundrels-The Musical
The scene for ‘Dirty Rotten Scoundrels’ is set in a small resort in the south of France where Laurence Jamieson is the resident confidence trickster. He is aided and abetted by the local chief of police and between them they relieve unsuspecting, wealthy visiting ladies of their cash. The balance is upset by the appearance of a rival, Freddie Benson who wants a piece of the action. Tension between Laurence and Freddie increases until they agree a wager that whoever fleeces the next suitable female will be the winner and the loser must leave town. A young American, Christine, arrives having apparently won ‘Miss Soap Queen USA’ with a very large cash prize. She is perfect for the challenge but, against their better judgment, both fraudsters fall in love with her. Freddie tries to appeal to her by acting the wounded war hero confined to a wheel chair by the stress of battle. However, his paralysis is emotional and only curable by the encouragement of a loving woman. To prevent such a liaison, Laurence pretends to be a German psychiatrist and thus foil Freddie’s plan. Christine provides a final twist that is a surprise to both of them.
