RE: Masquers Playhouse presents The Gamester by Freyda Thomas

For more info, contact:

Publicist: Peter Budinger (510) 712-0291 or peter@tremendo.org

The Gamester opens January 22 at Masquers Playhouse in Point Richmond. The Gamester is a glittering farce set in a Baroque Paris riddled with too much wealth, too much leisure time, too many casinos, too few women with any sort of real power, and too many ways of avoiding reality. Valère, a compulsive gambler, hilariously struggles between his affection for the woman he loves and his passion for the game. Directed by Steve Hill.

featuring Jason Berner, Richard Friedlander, Katina Letheule, Bethany Matthis-Montgomery, Dan Morgan, Kit Turner, David Weiner, Loralee Windsor, Rick Wood and Judy Zimola

Performances are Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm with Sunday Matinees at 2:00 pm on January 31, February 7 and February 14. The show plays through February 20. Tickets are $25 and all seats are general admission. Tickets can be purchased on line at www.masquers.org or by calling (510) 232-4031. The playhouse is located off of Highway 580 (Richmond Parkway exit) at 105 Park Place, Point Richmond across from the Hotel Mac.
