The winner of the Pulitzer Prize uses the card game as a metaphor for life. “The Gin Game” takes place on the porch of a retirement home where irascible Weller Martin meets the prim, self-righteous Fonsia Dosey. Fonsia wins every game and their secrets become weapons used against each other. “The New York Times” called the play “a thoroughly entertaining lesson in the fine art of theatrical finesse. The closest thing the theatre offers to a duel at 10 paces.” It is a funny, intelligent play that will touch your heart even as you laugh at the characters foibles.
