Why See The Gin Game?

The Pulitzer Prize-winning drama comes to Chicago

Having enjoyed a hugely successful revival on Broadway in 2015 starring legendary thespians Cicely Tyson and James Earl-Jones, this witty drama set in a nursing home makes its Chicago premiere at Drury Lane Oakbrook Terrace this June. The winner of the 1977 Pulitzer Prize, D.L. Coburn's play about old age and loneliness is symbolic of life played out as a game of cards.

Centred on an increasingly tense game of one-up-manship between two nursing home residents, The Gin Game is a tightly constructed two-hander which unveils its characters' hidden depths with masterful assuredness. It was last revived on the Great White Way in 1997, and featured Charles Durning and Julie Harris.

Over the course of three Sundays, their contest takes on a fractured atmosphere, veering sharply from flirtatious to hostile, as all the vulnerabilities that their conservative upbringings have repressed, come gradually bubbling to the surface.
