Elizabeth Ashley, Hallie Foote, Roger Robinson et al. Set for Alley Theatre's Dividing the Estate
Set in the town of Harrison, Texas, this sharp satire depicts a Southern dynasty in crisis. At odds over the fate of their dwindling inheritance, several generations of the well-to-do Gordon family must confront their disreputable past as they grapple with an uncertain future.
Hallie Foote, the late playwright's daughter, will recreate her Tony-nominated performance as Mary Jo in the production. Also featured in the cast will be Tony Award winners Elizabeth Ashley as Stella Gordon, and Roger Robinson as Doug.
The cast will also include Devon Abner as Son, James Black as Lewis Gordon, Pat Bowie as Mildred, James DeMarse as Bob, Ellen Dyer as Irene Ratliff, Penny Fuller as Lucille, Maggie Lacey as Pauline, Nicole Lowrance as Sissie, Jenny Dare Paulin as Emily, and Keiana Richard as Cathleen.
The production will feature scenic design by Jeff Cowie, costume design by David C. Woolard, lighting design by Rui Rita, and original music and sound design by John Gromada.
Wilson directed the Broadway/Lincoln Center Theatre production of Dividing the Estate, which received a Tony nomination for Best Play, the Outer Critics Circle Award, and an Obie Award for Foote's playwriting.
