SEQUIM — Tickets are on sale for “The Gin Game,” a Pulitzer Prize-winning play with only two characters, that will light up the stage at Olympic Theatre Arts beginning May 12.

“The Gin Game” will run for two weekends from May 12-21 with performances Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 2 p.m. in the OTA Gathering Hall, 414 N. Sequim Ave. A beverage bar and concessions will be available.

Tickets are on sale at the theater box office or online at olympictheatrearts.org/OTA.

Both roles in the play will be performed by veterans of both acting and directing on the OTA stage.

Olivia Shea will play Fonsia Dorsey and Pat Owens will create Weller Martin.

The characters are residents of a retirement home, where they meet and explore each other’s lives over many games of gin.

The play is directed by Dmitri Gerasimenko. Born in Russia and holding a master’s degree from the St. Petersburg State Theater Academy, Gerasimenko recently directed “The Odd Couple, Female Version” in Port Angeles.

Under his direction at OTA, the actors will run the gamut of the highest emotional highs and the lowest lows, OTA said.

For more information, contact the box office between 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Mondays through Fridays at 360-683-7326.
