In D.L. Coburn's sharp-witted dramedy, a game of cards between two lonely nursing-home residents turns into a battle royale with serious personal stakes. Weller and Fonsia strike up a friendly acquaintance as he teaches her to play gin rummy, revealing intimate details of their lives along the way. But as Fonsia wins hand after hand, Weller becomes frustrated and their simple pastime becomes an all-out war, with shared secrets as weapons of mass emotional destruction. This Pulitzer Prize winner was revived on Broadway in 2016 with James Earl Jones and Cicely Tyson. Washington's gifted actors Roz White and Doug Brown bring the tale to life, so grab a seat and get dealt in at MetroStage in Alexandria.
