BWW Review: NIGHT SEASONS Embraces the Charmingly Quotidian at Quotidian Theatre CompanyBWW Review: NIGHT SEASONS Embraces the Charmingly Quotidian at Quotidian Theatre Company
by Evann Normandin - Jul 16, 2017

Horton Foote's NIGHT SEASONS, directed by Jack Sbarbori at the Quotidian Theatre Company, examines the nature of a life defined by money and greed, and the notion that perhaps living is the greatest punishment of all. Foote, best known for his 1962 screenplay for To Kill a Mockingbird, delivers a quiet critique of capitalist culture and asks us to consider what "home" means. NIGHT SEASONS places us in Harrison Texas, 1963 on Josie Weems' (Jane Squier Bruns) 93rd birthday, though the play deals in flashbacks and the setting easily slips back and forth through 1923-1963 and the years in between. Josie Weems (Jane Squier Bruns) is the manipulative glue that holds the rambling Weems family together by subtly managing finances and allowing and prohibiting marriages at her discretion. (more...)

BWW Review: Horton Foote's THE TRAVELING LADY Arrives At The Cherry LaneBWW Review: Horton Foote's THE TRAVELING LADY Arrives At The Cherry Lane
by Michael Dale - Jul 2, 2017

As America's great playwrights go, Horton Foote, who passed on in 2009, just shy of his 93rd birthday, was perhaps the most understated of them all.  In a prolific career that involved golden age television dramas, Academy Award winning screenplays and dozens of stage works, his favorite source of inspiration was the relatives and neighbors he observed growing up in the quiet comfort of East Texas.
