‘Choice’ transfers to West End

Marber play begins performances on Dec. 6

Patrick Marber’s play “Dealer’s Choice,” now in a sold-out run at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London, gets a 16-week West End transfer starting Dec. 6.

The incarnation at Trafalgar Studios One retains the entire Chocolate Factory cast, including Malcolm Sinclair (“V for Vendetta”), Stephen Wight, and Samuel Barnett.

Marber’s first play, “Dealer’s Choice” preemed in 1995 at London’s National Theater and later transferred to the West End. Plot centers on a regular poker game at which the stakes are unusually high.

Marber wrote the play “Closer” as well as the screenplay for the 2004 pic adaptation, and also penned the script for “Notes on a Scandal.”
