Humor and psychological warfare crackle over a card game between two quick-witted residents of an assisted living facility in this Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The residents, Fonsia Dorsey and Weller Martin, bond over dislike of their seedy nursing home and their enjoyment playing gin rummy with one another. But as Fonsia wins the games again and again, Weller is forced to choose between friendship and competition in this uproariously funny and poignant play.
“A thoroughly entertaining lesson in the fine art of theatrical finesse. The closest thing the theatre offers to a duel at 10 paces.” – The New York Times
