The Gin Game  by DL Coburn

Directed by   Sabian Trout


Starring Roberta Streicher and John Mills


"A thoroughly entertaining lesson in the fine art of theatre finesse…..The closest thing the theatre offers to a (comedic) duel at 10 paces"……...N.Y. Times

This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize, which originally starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronin, uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin (John Mills) is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey (Roberta Streicher), a prim, self righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives.
