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

A fun one man show full of pop culture references and hilarious dialogue (with unseen and unheard characters). The show is about a young man struggling to reconcile his real-life as an underappreciated tech guy with his fantasy-life as leader of an online army of computer nerds. At the end of the show, the actor engages with the audience about the development of his show and about the dichotomy of the modern world between our human selves and our online personas. It was a very enjoyable and thought-provoking afternoon.

It’s the most important day of “computer-gaming-geek” Steve Smolinski’s life. He’s about to save humanity from destruction at the hands of bloodthirsty elves ... which would be a lot easier if he didn’t have to do it from his cubicle at work. In a tour-de-force one-man show, GAM3RS captures the chaos that ensues when one’s virtual world and real life collide. Written and performed by USD/Globe grad, Brian Bielawski and co-directed by Walter G. Meyer, GAM3RS premiered to critical praise at the New York Fringe Festival.
