Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, The Gin Game is an intimate and poignant drama about Fonsia, a woman in her twilight years who enters a "home for the aged" and is for a while saved from melancholy by the crusty charm of Weller. Over a series of gin games the two seemingly become close companions, revealing much about their regret-filled lives -- until Weller's pent-up rage and Fonsia's subtle needling build to a confrontation. A long-running Broadway hit, The Gin Game has subsequently toured the world and been adapted for television twice, most recently with Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore. Learn More
