The Vineyard Cafe and Dinner Theatre, 21 W. Park Square in Marietta, will have dinner and a show, featuring The Gin Game.
Shows will be April 13-14, April 20-27 and May 4.
Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey, two elderly residents at a nursing home for senior citizens, strike up an acquaintance. Neither seems to have any other friends. 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 for him. While playing their games, they engage one another in lengthy conversations about their families and their lives in the outside world. Gradually, each conversation becomes a battle, much like their gin games.
Dialog in the show does contain some profanity.
Tickets are $2 plus tax. Seating is limited. Tickets need to be purchased 24 hours in advance.
