The Gin Game
Snappy dialogue and quick wit crackle in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play that was called, "the closest thing the theatre offers to a duel at 10 paces" by The New York Times. On a lonely visitor's day at a home for the aged, Weller teaches Fonsia to play Gin Rummy. But as the two get to know each other, and Fonsia goes on an instant winning streak, the tension starts to build within their new friendship. A collaboration between local Seattle legends Jeff Steitzer (director), Kurt Beattie (Weller), and Marianne Owen (Fonsia), this tragic-comedy is full of humor, spirit, and more than a touch of warfare.
