THE CON COMMANDMENTS by Dave Proctor

£5.00

This play is an imagined re-enactment of the fascinating real-life story of Count Victor Lustig, probably the greatest con-men of all time.

In 1925 the Count, accompanied by his sidekick, Dapper Dan, sold the Eiffel tower for scrap- twice.

So who was he?

And what happened next?

If you intend to stage this play, it is advisable not to tell your audience that it is about the fraudulent sale of the Eiffel Tower.

You do not want to spoil the surprise.
