Called "America's Chekhov," playwright Horton Foote could write about families with the X-ray sensitivity of a Russian master, but also with the wily wit of a native Texan. Both qualities of this Tony-, Pulitzer- and Oscar-winning writer are showcased in Dividing the Estate, a darkly comic portrait of a family at odds. It's 1987 in Harrison, Texas and the Gordons have fallen on hard times. Still, Mama is dead-set against splitting up the 100-year-old estate. Her adult children, however, have other plans. Tom Key directs some of Atlanta's finest talent in Theatrical Outfit's fresh production of this masterwork from the writer of Tender Mercies, The Young Man from Atlanta and The Orphans' Home Cycle.

This one-woman show is an amazing experience. The playright, poet, and actress uses everything at her disposal to convey the intensity of her journey from Albania to the US. Though much of the reality of what she lived through is heart-breaking, the play is filled with moments of wonder, laughter, humor and humanity. I've already been twice and I may go again before the play ends its run. Don't miss this one. It is life-changing.
