Ethics and the Theater will present: The Gin Game by D. L. Coburn.

Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey sit on the porch of the senior home to which they have been consigned by their families, and play gin. As game follows game, the pair talk, sparring sometimes humorously, sometimes brutally, probing for and revealing secrets, and laying bare harsh truths about aging in America today.

Come at 6:30 pm for a reception and after the reading participate in a discussion of the ethical issues of the play led by Betsy Ungar.
