Description

Cronyn and Cooper, both extremely successful artists in their own right, came together in 1980 to create Foxfire. Their first collaboration was intended to create a vehicle for Cronyn and then-wife Jessica Tandy to act together. The main source for this play came from The Foxfire Books, a compilation of magazine articles written by Georgian high school students in the 1960s about their grandparents’ homesteading generation in the Appalachian Mountains.

_Foxfire _was the starting point of a long friendship and playwrighting partnership for Cronyn and Cooper that, after Tandy died, eventually resulted in marriage for the pair.
