Description

The Young Man from Atlanta

by Horton Foote

Directed by: August Viverito

Starring: Dick DeCoit, Eileen Barnett and Hap Lawrence

1950 — a comfortable suburb of Houston.  The well-upholstered fortress of the Kidders’ lives is suddenly under siege, and from a number of directions. In the play’s first scene, Will Kidder loses his job of many years, just as he’s sunk a bundle into a new house.  And he and his wife Lily Dale have yet to come to terms with the death of their 37-year-old son and only child, Bill, who lived in Atlanta and drowned during a business trip to Florida.

Since Bill couldn’t swim, the death was a mystery.  Probably a suicide. Why?  His mother and father don’t have a clue. But the young man of the play’s title, who was Bill’s roommate and who is never actually seen, has words of comfort for the parents, if they choose to listen.
