The Gin Game

By Donald L. Coburn

Directed by David Mallis
Produced by Michelle Spanik

A dramatic comedy to start the season.

Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey, two elderly residents at a nursing home for senior citizens, strike up an acquaintance. With no visitors coming to see them the pair talk about their lives, their families and matters of the heart. They start to enjoy each other’s company. Weller offers to teach Fonsia how to play gin rummy, and they begin playing a series of games that Fonsia always wins. Weller’s inability to win a single hand becomes increasingly frustrating to him, while Fonsia becomes increasingly confident.

While playing their games of gin, they engage in lengthy conversations about their families and their lives in the outside world. Gradually, each conversation becomes a battle, much like the ongoing gin game.

“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

“Powerful and undeniably unforgettable.”

Murder In Mind

By Terence Feely

Directed by Michael Hannigan
Produced by TBA

If you enjoy a good murder mystery, this one is for you!

When Mary, an international art dealer, arrives home after the unpleasant experience of an airplane on which she had hoped to fly to America, catching fire, she has the further shock of finding her house occupied by three “strangers” claiming to be her husband, cousin and sister. Even more mysterious is the fact that they seem aware of details of her family life which could only have been known to her most intimate circle. In fact, they even apparently convince a highly suspicious Detective Sergeant. The nightmare situation becomes more and more complicated, including the sudden appearance of a murdered man, until, with the arrival of Chief Inspector Gale, a series of ingenious twists brings an eventful evening, for all concerned, to a surprising close.

It has twists and turns that will surprise you and keep you guessing.
