One of America's preeminent dramatists, Horton Foote returns to the fictional town of Harrison, Texas, with two captivating plays about the bewildering and unsettling encroachment of change in the American south. In a series of haunting dramatic monologues, "The Carpetbagger's Children" tells the story of three daughters who struggle against the pressures of modern life to uphold their father's dying wish. It is a timeless and elegiac portrayal of a once-vibrant family slowly disintegrating over time. "The Actor" tells the hilarious and moving story of a young man who'll make any sacrifice to keep his dream from being crushed under the weight of his parents' expectations. It's a charming exploration of artistic ambition from one of modern theater's greatest artists.
