The Gin Game [Theatre Burlington]

The Gin Game

By Donald L. Coburn

Directed by David Mallis
Produced by Michelle Spanik

A dramatic comedy to start the season.

Weller Martin and Fonsia Dorsey, two elderly residents at a nursing home for senior citizens, strike up an acquaintance. With no visitors coming to see them the pair talk about their lives, their families and matters of the heart. They start to enjoy each other’s company. Weller offers to teach Fonsia how to play gin rummy, and they begin playing a series of games that Fonsia always wins. Weller’s inability to win a single hand becomes increasingly frustrating to him, while Fonsia becomes increasingly confident.

While playing their games of gin, they engage in lengthy conversations about their families and their lives in the outside world. Gradually, each conversation becomes a battle, much like the ongoing gin game.

Artist’s Palette Community Dye Garden [Hamilton Artists Inc]

Thea Haines - Artist’s Palette Community Dye Garden

June 10, 2016 – September 2018
ArcelorMittal Dofasco Courtyard, Hamilton Artists Inc.

Natural Dye Workshop: Saturday, September, 23, 2017: 2:30pm
$5.00 Limited space available. Pre-register by emailing programming@theinc.ca

The Artist’s Palette Community Dye Garden is an exhibition of colour. Until about 150 years ago, all colour – artist colours, fabric dyes, were derived from natural sources – plant, animal, and mineral. The garden is a display of plants that are traditional sources of painter’s colours, such as madder (which produces alizarin crimson) and weld (yellow lake), and important textile dyes, such as goldenrod, bedstraw and woad. A remarkable property of botanical colour is that each plant contains multiple pigments, producing a range of hues from each dyestuff. All plants contain various chemical compounds that make them useful to us – for food, and medicine, and some of these compounds, like carotenoids, flavonoids, and anthrocyanins – give colour. The colours produced from one species of plant can vary, depending on climate, growing conditions and other environmental factors – which gives each colour local cachet/terroir. The Artist Palette Community Dye Garden will create awareness of the integral role that plants play in our lives, as food, and as colour, while creating an educational opportunity for the public to engage with the practices of by-hand textile making, using natural materials through hands-on workshops, and artist talks.

Saturday, September 23, 2017 - 14:30
Hamilton Artists Inc., 155 James Street North, Hamilton ON
