A brash and sexy short play about death, deceit and poker.
Francis, Charlie and Cupid meet each week to play the game. Francis and Cupid share a savage secret. And when Charlie discovers the truth, it's a gun he wants to be holding and not a stack of cards.
Poker. It's a game of bluffs, gambles, victories and losses. A bit like life really.
