Sault Theatre Workshop Proudy Presents…
1978 Pulitzer Prize Drama By D.L. Coburn “THE GIN GAME” Directed by George Houston
Wednesday October 24th – Saturday October 27th, 2018
Sunday October 28th, 2018
The play is about Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey who meet on the porch of their nursing home and strike up a friendship, with Weller teaching Fonsia how to play gin rummy. But when Fonsia wins every hand, Weller becomes increasingly frustrated, until their gin games and conversations become a battleground, with each player exposing the other’s failures, disappointments and insecurities.
The Gin Game is a not-to-be-missed theatrical event that examines the plight of the elderly and how each character seems trapped by the hands they have been dealt.
STW is thrilled to have George Houston directing his father Edward Houston in a intense performance of D.L. Coburn classic.
