What it's about ... two strangers meet and get to know each other over a game of cards in a nursing home.
Why you should go ... this production comes alive in the hands of two of Chicago's most gifted actors: Paula Scrofano and John Reeger.
Who stands out ... you come away wondering if you have been dazzled by superb performances, great writing, or both. The charming truth is, you may never know.
Some takeaways ... you will want to always be the dealer ... you might discover that even if there are challenging house rules, you can still win.
Good to know ... plenty of convenient, free parking, but if you are running late, use the valet.
Eat, drink and be merry ... show up early and plan to enjoy a cocktail, appetizer or make a dinner reservation in advance.
