“The Gin Game”

A Tragi-Comedy
August 02nd thru September 12th, 2013

 

This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin (Tom Roohr) is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey,(Joanne Callahan-Roohr) 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. Fonsia wins every time and their secrets become weapons used against one another. Weller longs for a victory to counter a lifetime of defeats but it doesn't happen. He leaves the stage a broken man and Fonsia realizes her self-righteous rigidity has led to an embittered, lonely old age.
