“A must for discriminating theatergoers!”
-The New York Times
“It will be remembered a century from now as a classic of American theater.”
-The Wall Street Journal
“The play goes for laughs and succeeds, and at the same time comments on more sweeping notions of avarice and entitlement.”
-The New York Daily News
“An instant classic of American family life. Foote's perception was never more acute—nor turned to more unexpectedly hilarious effect.
ESTATE ranks with Foote's finest work. Wilson's years of staging Foote's plays pays off handsomely with a production perfectly attuned to the dramatist's vision.”
Nominated for a 2009 Tony Award for Best Play, the Broadway production of Pulitzer Prize winner Horton Foote’s knowing comedy about family, money, power and greed is having its West Coast premiere at The Old Globe! Living in Texas and ruled by octogenarian matriarch Stella – with theatre legend Elizabeth Ashley in the role she originated on Broadway – the family must confront their past as they prepare for an uncertain future when their fortune begins to diminish. Also starring Horton Foote Jr. and Hallie Foote, this production of their father’s final play is a true family affair. A co-production with Alley Theatre.
