The Gin Game
Winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and nominated for four Tony Awards, The Gin Game symbolizes life in the form of a card game in a two-act, two-character play starring Rick Huhn and Cathy Jewell Fischer. In The Gin Game, Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey strike up an acquaintance and begin to play gin rummy. As the game progresses, intimate secrets of their lives are revealed and they begin to search for each other’s weaknesses in both the game and life itself. With this production, Rick and Cathy join an elite history of famous duos who have previously battled in The Gin Game, including original stars Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy (the 1977 Broadway production and 1981 TV movie), Dick Van Dyke and Mary Tyler Moore (the 2003 PBS television special), and James Earl Jones and Cicely Tyson (the 2015 Broadway Revival).
