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.

We arrived early to have dinner before the performance. The Landmark Diner, just 1/2 block away on Luckie Street, is not fancy, but had a varied menu at reasonable prices. They have a full bar plus the food was delicious and service was fast and excellent.dining • Dec 16 2013 star this tip starred

I loved this play. Everything that Theatrical Outfit puts on is worth a look, but I was not expecting so much from this one, since I knew the story and thought this would just be a nod to the holiday season. They updated this O'Henry tale and made it socially relevant. I found myself moved to tears a couple of times by small details that touch the heart. If you get the chance to see this again at this theater, I would go for it. A beautiful experience.

Jim and Della are out of work and penniless during Christmas in New York. To afford presents for each other, both secretly part with their most precious possessions. In O. Henry’s classic holiday story, the two lovers’ gesture of giving creates a warm and intimate Christmas in the cold, unfriendly city. Set to the music of Randy Courts, this charming and transcendent musical will kindle the holiday spirit in the heart of Atlanta.
