The Orphans' Home Cycle: Part 2 - The Story of a Marriage

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 2 "The Story of a Marriage"



Act I: The Widow Claire

On the night before he leaves Harrison for business school in Houston, Horace calls on the widow Claire Ratliff. Over the course of the evening he becomes further entangled in the lives of Claire and her young children as she makes a decision that will decide their futures.



Act II: Courtship

Elizabeth Vaughn has been seeing Horace Robedaux against the wishes of her parents and now must make a choice between Horace and her family.



Act III: Valentine's Day
