The Gin Game

by D.L. Coburn
Directed by Dennis Hennessy
August 12 – 30, 2015
City Stage at Union Station

Featuring Victor Raider-Wexler and Marilyn Lynch

Humor and psychological warfare crackle over a card game between two quick-witted residents of an assisted living facility in this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama. Though neither Fonsia nor Weller is quite ready to admit their weaknesses – or their secrets – their game of gin becomes a metaphor for life as each one wages an emotional battle against aging.

More Information / Performance Calendar

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this American stage classic takes place in the Mississippi household of the Magrath sisters. Babe has just shot her husband because she didn’t like his looks. Meg is back in town after a failed attempt in the music business and a nervous breakdown. And poor Lenny – everyone has forgotten her birthday … and her pet horse was just struck by lightning! With warm hearted laughs, the sisters learn to forgive the past, face the present and embrace the future in this award-winning Broadway comedy.

Classically trained actors. Classic plays.

The Actors Theatre brings professional drama to Kansas City, in a vibrant presentation for the virtual age. The Theatre, formed by a veteran collective of artists, reimagines modern classics in settings across the city. A war story at the National WWI Museum … a meditation on death at the Muehlebach Funeral Home. Each production is an experience, bringing the actors and their words into focus. And because The Actors Theatre is mobile, without the overhead of a performance space, nearly all income goes to pay the best local actors, designers and technicians, so that the art of theatre can flourish in Kansas City.
