THE STORY: In the tradition of great American plays, Daisy Foote explores the institution of the American family in HIM. Two siblings struggling to keep the family store afloat must decide which is a priority: their father’s final wishes or their financial stability. It’s a choice that could tear them apart.
“HIM turns on a surprising revelation about a potential family inheritance that may give Pauline and Henry a reprieve from the none too genteel poverty in which they live…[Foote’s] characters are drawn with a fine focus, and the unfolding of the central plotline is engrossing, as a loving brother and sister find themselves dangerously at odds over the family legacy.” —NY Times. “[Foote] is a playwright with something extremely perceptive to say and someone to watch in the future.” —TheaterMania.com. “Dramaturgy is not hereditary, but Foote shares her father Horton’s sensitive ear for repression and pettiness in the family, as well as his strain of nostalgia that is painful but briskly unsentimental.” —Time Out NY.
