WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
It is 1929 in the town of Harrison, Texas. On the eve of the Depression, the residents of a small boarding house deal with myriad crises, small and large: the quarrels between estranged husbands and wives, the uncertain future of a railroad engineer, and the coming of the "talkies" to the local movie theater, which signals the end of an era (and a job) for the woman who plays the live music there. These potentially cataclysmic events are chronicled with gentle humor and deep compassion by Horton Foote, "the Chekhov of the small town," in a play termed simply "a treasure" by Variety. Presented as part of the Horton Foote Festival.
