Gin rummy becomes a metaphor for life in D.L. Coburn’s Pulitzer Prize-winning dramatic comedy The Gin Game. In this Pacifica Spindrift Players production, two elderly nursing home residents, lonely and friendless, decide to pass the time by playing gin together. Weller, a surly old man, teaches Fonsia, a prim and withdrawn woman, how to play the game. As they play, they begin to reveal intimate details of their lives, and Weller becomes increasingly frustrated when he can’t beat his pupil. What starts as an innocent pastime soon becomes a battle, as each player attempts to expose and humiliate the other using as weapons the many secrets they’ve shared.
