CAMARILLO SKYWAY PLAYHOUSE PROUDLY PRESENTS:
THE GIN GAME
By D. L. Coburn
Directed by Brian Robert Harris
Produced by Dean Johnson & Jolyn Johnson
Larry Swartz as Weller Martin
Helene Benjamin Cohen as Fonsia Dorsey
Fonsia Dorsey is brand new to a nursing home (that wasn’t her first choice to live at), and she strikes up a friendship of sorts with current resident, Weller Martin. Weller decides to help pass the time by playing gin with her, and the two engage in a battle of wits, words, friendship, cards, and more as they both try to ease the loneliness of their age and stations.
As Weller continues to lose to Fonsia, he grows more frustrated and she gains more confidence until the friendly game of gin turns into a means to expose the other’s weaknesses.
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, “The Gin Game” explores themes of family, love, solitude, shame, lies, and ultimately struggles that anyone can relate to.
All tickets are $10 (not including platform service fee). Performance will be available for viewing on March 20th, 2021 ONLY, and will not be available for viewing after that date.
“The Gin Game” is presented through special arrangement with Concord Theatricals.
