The Gin Game 

By D.L. Coburn
Directed by Frank Bartucca and Featuring Beth Goldman and Mike Kiernan

This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize the uses a gin game as metaphor for life. Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self-righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy and so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. “Extremely funny, sad, profane, eloquent, touching, beautiful.”

The Gin Game originally starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn and was later revived with Julie Harris and Charles Durning.  The play uses a card game as a metaphor for life in a seedy nursing home.  The aged couple discover they both dislike the nursing home and enjoy gin rummy.  The New York Times said at the time that the play was the “closest thing the theater offers to a duel at 10 paces.  The Sinai Stage production is a reprise of Beth Goldman’s and Mike Kiernan’s performance in 2011 in Mansfield.
