This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday veteran actors Rita Corn and Jack Rabito will be performing in a special fundraising production of "The Gin Game," the Pulitzer prize-winning play by D.L. Coburn that first starred Jessica Tandy and Hume Cronyn.
Often referred to as a tragic comedy, the play takes place during a weekly gin rummy game in a state-run retirement home. Fonsia Dorsey and Weller Martin are residents who develop a friendship while playing cards. Fonsia is new to the game; Weller is an expert. Tension develops when Fonsia's beginner's luck begins to grate on Weller's nerves.
