In this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, a card game serves as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey, a prim, self-righteous lady. They discover they both dislike the home and enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play and to reveal intimate details of their lives.
"…A vibrant study on loneliness, disillusion, old age and death yet fiercely
funny." – The Boston Globe
Please note that this show contains strong language and adult themes.
