This Pulitzer Prize for Drama winner uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia, 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. Fonsia wins every time, and their secrets become weapons used against one another.

Not recommended for children.

“Perfect! a vibrant study on loneliness, disillusion, old age and death yet fiercely funny.” The Boston Globe
