This modern American classic and Pulitzer Prize-winning play is a touching, moving, and heart-wrenching story about two people looking back on their long lives. Set against the backdrop of a dusty, run-down, Midwestern nursing home, the story unfolds over game after game of gin. As the games intensify, Fonsia and Weller come to grips with what is left of their lives, reveal secrets, regrets, and hopes – and sometimes those revelations become weapons. Weller longs for a victory – after a lifetime of defeats, and Fonsia realizes she may be to blame for her own loneliness. “Extremely intelligent…A fine bittersweet comedy…Funny, sad, profane, eloquent, touching, beautiful.” -WABC-TV
