House of Games (Oberon Modern Plays)
In a new adaptation of David Mamet's film, Harvard-educated psychoanalyst Margaret Ford is celebrated for her best selling book 'Driven Compulsion and Obsession in Every Day Life'.Stepping in to help one of her patients settle his gambling debts, she compromises her professional reputation and is drawn into the seedy underworld of the House of Games poker club.
Seduced by charismatic hustler Mike, Margaret convinces herself that she can make an academic study of the con. Before she realises it, Margaret is entangled in a fast-paced complex thriller.
