Very VERY well done. There were at least 200--five busloads-- of 8th graders in the audience the night I went and there was not a peep out of them. Guess they really enjoyed it too!

Thoroughly enjoyable, with professionals in charge, in every role. A spare set with minimal changes lets the dialogue and mood of the story take center stage. If you love theatre and Horton Foote's beautiful writing, don't miss this show.

Description

Trapped in a cramped Houston apartment with her soft-spoken son and self-absorbed daughter-in-law, widow Carrie Watts dreams of returning to her home in the small Gulf Coast town of Bountiful, where she grew up and raised her own family. Fearing that she’s an imposition and chafing under her daughter-in-law’s watchful eye, she steals away with her latest pension check and heads home. The results are both brilliantly life-affirming and heartbreaking in one of legendary playwright Horton Foote’s most beloved works.

Timothy Douglas directs an African American cast in a new production endorsed by the Foote estate especially for Round House*.

*The cast includes Doug Brown, Jessica Frances Dukes, Chinai J. Hardy, Robert Jason Jackson, Lizan Mitchell and Lawrence Redmond.
