Description
The quiet porch of a rest home for the aged explodes with emotion when prim Fonsia Dorsey sits down to play gin rummy with the cynical Weller Martin. Fonsia is drawn to Weller, but she just can't stop winning at cards, while Weller bemoans the bad luck that is ruining his game and has dogged him throughout his life. Tragic yet uproariously funny, this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama examines themes of individual responsibility and society's mistreatment of the aged. A co-production with The Smithsonian Associates and Voice of America. Director: Nick Olcott Producing Director: Susan Albert Loewenberg An L.A. Theatre Works performance featuring: Katherine Helmond as Fonsia Dorsey Harris Yulin as Weller Martin Recorded before a live audience at Voice of America, Washington D.C. in September of 1995.
