The Orphans' Home Cycle, Part Two: The Story of a Marriage
“Horton Foote’s epic nine-play cycle about early-twentieth-century life in the small fictional town of Harrison, Texas, continues on its winning way…there’s not a wasted moment…utterly engaging and deeply compelling work.” —Backstage.
“The second part of Horton Foote’s immensely satisfying ORPHANS’ HOME CYCLE is fraught and full of darkness…Stakes remain high, the ending is far off and our hero realizes that a long, hard road lies ahead. In Foote’s nine-play, three-part epic about the youth and adulthood of Horace Robedaux (based on his father’s life), we see a man with a painful past trying to build a future.” —The New Yorker.
“It’s not a fanfare Foote has written for the common man, but a series of chamber pieces…an enchanting whole…rarely has everyday life been so modestly inspiring as it is in Foote’s hands.” —New York Post.
“Don’t be deceived by the uneventfulness of THE STORY OF A MARRIAGE, a play about nothing that turns out to have been about everything: love, loss, death, hope.” —Wall Street Journal.
