Photo Flash: The Carpetbagger's Children at Ford¬'s Theatre

The Carpetbagger's Children by Horton Foote and directed by Mark Ramont runs January 21-February 13, 2011

In a series of charming, humorous and poignant vignettes, Horton Foote's The Carpetbagger's Children weaves a captivating tapestry of family secrets, small-town lives and private tragedies. At the center of the play are sisters Cornelia, Grace Anne and Sissie, daughters of a Union soldier who moved south after the war. The sisters' bonds are challenged as they seek to preserve the family's Texas plantation in an era of startling growth and change. Director of Theatre Programming Mark Ramont (The Rivalry) directs this powerful and thoughtful exploration of one family's life in the Post-Reconstruction South. An Academy Award-winning playwright, Foote won the 2002 Steinberg/American Theatre Critics New Play Award for The Carpetbagger's Children. Washington favorites Nancy Robinette, Kimberly Schraf and Holly Twyford star in the Ford's Theatre premiere of a play by one of the nation's most prolific writers for stage and screen.
