Horton Foote’s Dividing the Estate has its Brooklyn Premiere with The Heights Players tonight; the run lasts through September 22nd.
As with many of Foote’s plays, Dividing the Estate is set in the fictional town of Harrison, Texas in 1987. This prize-winning play focuses on the Gordon clan, led by octogenarian Stella Gordon. In the late 1980s, the country is facing a shifting economy. The Gordon family must confront their past as they prepare for an uncertain future while facing plunging real estate values and unexpected tax bills. As their fortune begins to diminish, various members of the family – particularly Stella’s greedy children – prepare to divide her estate … while she is still alive!
The Heights Players takes on a new production each month. Visit their site for the schedule.
