DIVIDING THE ESTATE to Run 9/19-10/12 at The Sherman Playhouse
The Sherman Playhouse has announced its fall comedy, DIVIDING THE ESTATE, by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Horton Foote.
In DIVIDING THE ESTATE, matriarch Stella Gordon is determined not to divide her 100-year-old Texas property, despite her family's declining wealth and the looming financial crisis. But her three children have another plan. Old resentments and sibling rivalries surface as the members of this hilariously dysfunctional family go head-to-head to see who might claim the biggest piece of the pie.
The production features some of the region's finest actors: Leo Paul (Litchfield), Julian Thomas (New York City), Ellen Burnett (Sherman), William H. Greenage IV (Wappingers Falls, NY), Christine Amorin (Bethel), Kimberly Marcus and Brian Feinberg (both Danbury), and Erin Shaughnessy, Jackie Decho Holm, Lorina Milay, Phair Haldin, Beth Bonnabeau, and Josephine Harding (all New Milford).
