In this Pulitzer Prize-winning tragi-comedy by Donald L. Coburn, Fonsia Dorsey, a woman in her twilight years residing in a “home for the aged,” has her loneliness interrupted by the crusty charm of fellow resident Weller Martin, who teaches her how to play Gin Rummy. As the couple gets to know each other over repeated games, much is revealed about their regret-filled lives. As Fonsia wins again and again, Weller’s rage escalates until he finally must choose between friendship and competition. In this perfect blend of humor and pathos, The Gin Game brings to light many of the issues faced by today’s seniors and their families. The show is rated mature audience for strong language.
