THE BALZER THEATER AT HERREN'S COUPONS IN 2014
Called "America's Chekhov," playwright Horton Foote could write about families with the X-ray .. read moresensitivity of a Russian master, but also with the wily wit of a native Texan. Both qualities of this Tony-, Pulitzer- and Oscar-winning writer are showcased in Dividing the Estate , a darkly comic portrait of a family at odds. It's 1987 in Harrison, Texas and the Gordons have fallen on hard times. Still, Mama is dead-set against splitting up the 100-year-old estate. Her adult children, however, have other plans. Tom Key directs some of Atlanta's finest talent in Theatrical Outfit's fresh production of this masterwork from the writer of Tender Mercies , The Young Man from Atlanta and The Orphans' Home Cycle .
