If Men Played Cards as Women Do is a play by American playwright, theatre director and producer, humorist, and drama critic George S. Kaufman (1889-1961) [1]]. Short Play, Satire/Political Satire, 4m.

A brilliant satire for men, successfully played in Irving Berlin's "Music Box Revue." The fun is derived from the fact that a group of men at the bridge table speak, behave, and think after the manner in which women are supposed to conduct their game.
