Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre presents “Orphans’ Home Cycle – A Trilogy”
October 25, 2018 @ 7:00 PM - November 18, 2018 @ 10:00 PM CDT
Horton Foote wrote more than 60 plays, won a Pulitzer Prize, two Academy Awards, but he finished editing what he called his magnum opus shortly before his death. In “The Orphans’ Home Cycle,” he unpacks his story in three parts, crafting an intimate American epic that’s at once personal and panoramic. The plays follow the 26-year journey of Horace Robedaux, based on the writer’s father, from displaced child to struggling young adult to family patriarch.
