The Gin Game
by D.L. Coburn

directed by Jim Howland

Winner of the 1978 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, The Gin Game takes place in a nursing home and follows the gin game beteween Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey. They discover they both dislike the home but enjoy gin rummy, so they begin to play. As these two feisty card combatants take each other on we learn about their past, their troubles and what brought them to this point in their life. Come join us for this emotional rollercoaster that will surely bring you to tears but have you laughing along the way.

Featuring Ralph Rosati and Cheryl Glicker

2017 RCP One Act Festival

Following a one year hiatus, the RCP One Act Festival returns this year! We are now accepting original one act scripts for consideration.

Submission info: One-Act scripts due by 11pm, April 30, 2017. Email: scripts@rosedalecommunityplayers.com, please include RCP OAF 2017 in the subject line. Winning scripts will be chosen by a panel of readers and announced June 1, 2017 and will be performed 4 times from September 7 - September 10, 2017. Scripts should be no longer than 15 pages of dialogue, plus a separate title page. We prefer unproduced works but will consider all submitted. Limit of 2 scripts per playwright. Minimal set preferred but anything goes! Scripts over 15 pages of dialogue may still be considered and will also be passed along to our Readers Theatre* committee for possible workshopping with performers and live audiences. If you have a full length script please feel free to email them to the same address above and we will make sure the Readers Theatre committee reviews them.
*What is Readers Theatre? Readers Theatre is where we help provide staged readings of plays or excerpts from plays in development. We work with the playwright to cast talent to best bring the characters to life and read a few scripts at a time with an audience. Afterwards we facilitate a directed Q & A session to help the playwright with constructive feedback to help them improve their script. Please feel free to share this information with any playwrights you know. Any additional questions can be directed to scripts@rosedalecommunityplayers.com.
