Full 22 Person Cast Announced for ReGroup's A TEXAS TRILOGY, 8/7-24
by BWW News Desk - Jul 24, 2014

Commonly known as A Texas Trilogy, the three plays centered on small-town life set the theatre world afire in 1974. Originally presented at the Dallas Theatre Center, the plays drew such attention that NY critics and theatre luminaries were soon flying to Dallas to witness American theatre at its finest. Signed by legendary agent Audrey Wood, who had also discovered Tennessee Williams and William Inge, Jones's plays then transferred to a sold-out run at the Kennedy Center. Preston Jones went from obscurity to being on the cover of many national magazines. The Saturday Review cover proudly proclaimed him "The Next O'Neill." A bidding war then broke out to bring the plays to New York, and, directed by Alan Schneider, they finally arrived on Broadway in 1976. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Back Porch Players' TEA AND SYMPATHY is Incredibly Relevant and Extremely Powerful
by David Clarke - Aug 12, 2013

The Back Porch Players are dedicated to presenting theatrical works that deal with the ideas of identity and social responsibility.

In its original Broadway production, it ran for over 700 performances and was adapted for film in 1956.
