Recurring Event Event Series: The Gin Game by Second Street Players

The Gin Game by Second Street Players

January 27 @ 7:00 pm

ABOUT THE SHOW…
 
The Gin Game, a 1978 Pulitzer Prize winning powerhouse written by D.L. Coburn, is a tragicomedy in two acts. Serving up equal portions of “laugh out loud” hilarity and gut-wrenching angst, the show centers around a man and a woman who meet on the porch of a run down nursing home that’s seen better days.
 
Feeling as though they don’t belong, Weller and Fonsia form a bond over their mutual distaste for their current circumstances and their enjoyment of playing gin together. They find in one another intellectual companionship and perhaps a hint of something more.
 
But something goes awry. Weller becomes increasingly frustrated as Fonsia proceeds to win game after game. It soon becomes evident that this is not simply about a game of cards, but a battle of wills. As their card playing becomes more volatile, Weller and Fonsia spar relentlessly towards a stunning finale.

Patrons should be advised that there is some strong language in this show.
