The Orphans' Home Cycle: Part 1 - The Story of a Childhood

The Orphans' Home Cycle is a world premiere production of nine plays that Horton Foote has adapted into a three part theatrical event. Each of the nine plays was originally written as a full-length play, but they are being presented together this season in their newly adapted three part form for the first time!



Part I "The Story of a Childhood"



Act I: Roots in a Parched Ground

When his father dies and his mother and sister move to Houston, Horace Robedaux is left behind in Harrison, Texas with his feuding relatives, the Robedauxs and the Thorntons.



Act II: Convicts

Horace takes a job on Soll Gautier's plantation in order to earn money to buy a tombstone for his father's grave and while there witnesses the harsh treatment of Gautier's convict laborers.



Act III: Lily Dale

Horace makes a rare visit to Houston to see his mother Corella and sister, Lily Dale. As Horace's presence stirs up difficult memories for his mother and sister, Corella strives to maintain harmony between her children and their stepfather, Pete Davenport.
