According to Hoyle

By William Gaminara

A comedy drama about male friendship in which five old friends meet for a traditional evening of poker.

As the stakes rise, the deception of the game exposes the levels of deception in their lives.

William Gaminara's play According to Hoyle was first performed at Hampstead Theatre, London, in 1995.

Press Quotes

'A feisty, sharply entertaining comedy. The play's real strength is in its dialogue, which has whiplash severity which spares the characters nothing, as they reveal the fact that in the bluffer's game of life they are all losers'

Guardian

'Gaminara's writing, switching brilliantly between past and present, is a group portrait of inadequacies, of the unthinking cruelties of English male friendship. The humour is harsh, but oddly and touchingly tender'

The Sunday Times

'An enthralling entertainment'
