Laguna Playhouse Presents: The Gin Game
Longtime nursing home resident Weller Martin (Joe Spano) has avoided the other patients, until newcomer Fonsia Dorsey (JoBeth Williams) engages him in a quiet game of gin rummy. The two strike up a friendship as they share stories about the lives they led in the outside world. But when Fonsia wins every hand, Weller becomes increasingly frustrated, until their gin games and conversations become a battleground, and as each game progresses, a most unexpected climax puts both at odds with each other, their pasts and themselves.
The Gin Game is presented in arrangement with Concord Theatricals on behalf of Samuel French, Inc. www.concordtheatricals.com
