Snappy dialogue and quick wit crackle in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play that was called, “the closest thing the theatre offers to a duel at 10 paces” by The New York Times. Meet Weller and Fonsia, two strangers who are about to enter into a seemingly harmless game of Gin Rummy. But when Fonsia goes on an instant winning streak, tensions build within their new friendship and the conversation starts to get personal.
A collaboration between local Seattle legends Jeff Steitzer (director), Kurt Beattie (Weller), and Marianne Owen (Fonsia), The Gin Game is full of humor, spirit, and more than a touch of warfare.
This play contains strong language.
