Feb. 16, 17, 18 and 23, 24, 25

“This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, which originally starred Jessica Tandy
and Hume Cronyn and was later revived with Julie Harris and Charles Durning, uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy
nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self-righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives. What follows is a witty and compelling exploration of love, loss, bitterness, and desire.”
(~Samuel French)

“Perfect [...] A vibrant study on loneliness, disillusion, old age and death yet fiercely funny.” – The Boston Globe
