New Luxury Guesthouse Tall Tales Sprouts up at Saybrook Point Inn & Spa

The original plan was for the new, six-room boutique “beach house” in Old Saybrook to be a bit more diminutive than the elegant Three Stories next door. But flood elevations kept rising, necessitating engineering changes that resulted in a taller-than-expected building.

Description

The Gin Game

 

This winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize uses a card game as a metaphor for life. Weller Martin (Tom Roohr) is playing solitaire on the porch of a seedy nursing home. Enter Fonsia Dorsey,(Joanne Callahan-Roohr) 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. Weller longs for a victory to counter a lifetime of defeats but it doesn't happen. He leaves the stage a broken man and Fonsia realizes her self-righteous rigidity has led to an embittered, lonely old age. THE GIN GAME runs every Friday and Saturday at 8:00pm from August 2nd thru September 14th 2013. Doors open at 7:15pm.Tickets are now on sale. ALL MAJOR CREDIT CARDS are accepted. To purchase tickets, please call the box office at 860-829-1248. Reservations are recommended.
