Horton Foote

Published by Overlook Press

One of America's preeminent dramatists, Horton Foote returns to the fictional lown of Harrison, Texas, with two captivating plays about the bewildering and unsettling encroachment of change in the American South

The Carpetbagger's Children tells the story of the three daughters of Joseph Thompson, 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, bitten by the acting bug, who'll make any sacrifice to keep his dream of a theatrical career from being crushed under the weight of his parents' expectations

"Few dramatists today can replicate this kind of storytelling with the gentle mastery that Mr Foote provides"
