AMANA — “The Gin Game” a drama by D. L. Coburn, will open The Old Creamery Theatre’s Studio Stage season on Thursday, April 12, at 3 p.m.

The play is set in a care center where two lonely residents strike up an innocent game of Gin Rummy. Things get out of control as fury, first at the card game and then at their fate, rises to the surface. Winner of a Pulitzer Prize for drama, “The Gin Game” is rated Theatre R for adult language.

Tom Milligan, producing director of The Old Creamery from West Amana and Kay Francis of Naples, Fla., will be featured in the show that runs through April 29.

As a warm-up for The Old Creamery’s production, Milligan and Francis gave three performances of the play in January at the Norris Community Center in Naples, Fla.

Tickets are $27 for adults and $17.50 for students. Show times are Thursdays and Sundays at 3 p.m. and Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. Call the box office at (800) 35-AMANA or visit the website at www.oldcreamery.com for more information or to purchase tickets. Group and student rates are available. Reservations are recommended.

The Old Creamery Theatre Company is a not-for-profit professional theater founded in 1971 in Garrison. The company is celebrating 41 years of bringing live, professional theater to the residents of Iowa and the Midwest.
