Stockton Students Tell Story of Casinos in New Play “Just One More Hand”

The history of casino gaming in Atlantic City will be told through the eyes of casino workers in a new play, “Just One More Hand,” which will debut at Stockton University’s Experimental Theatre from Feb. 14-18.

The play is based on the 2015 book “Just One More Hand: Life in the Casino Economy” written by Stockton Professors of Economics Ellen Mutari and Deborah M. Figart.
