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

First of all, I was so happy to have found a theater like the Tenth Avenue--a place where lesser known, not just popular plays could be found. "The Maids" was controversial when it opened in Paris and I think to a general audience, it is still controversial today. The acting was very strong, in particular the roles of Claire and La Madame. The venue is intimate; you almost have to be involved. The staff was charming and welcoming. Park at the city lot just a block away for $10 is well worth the money; otherwise, you will find yourself circling the theater forever in search of a spot. We had a wonderful evening thanks to the Tenth Avenue Theatre--it's a gem.
This play is appropriate for ages 16 and older.
The theater is located on the 4th floor of the building. There is one elevator available.
