RAAC Community Theatre’s production this weekend of “The Gin Game” stars Joyce Abell and Andy Platt in powerful dramatic roles in the Pulitzer-Prize winning play. The set, designed by Susan Hornbostel, employs everyday materials in surprising ways; you’ll never guess what the shingles on the wall are made of. Shows are at 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday (Sept. 25-26) at 310 Gay St. in Washington. For tickets ($15), visit raac.org/raacwp/community-theatre. Note: The play contains strong language.
