Dividing the Estate by Horton Foote

Written by Horton Foote
Directed by Tom Key

Old resentments and sibling rivalries bubble to the surface as the hilariously dysfunctional Gordon family of Harrison, Texas, spar to claim the biggest piece of the pie in the wildly funny, Tony-nominated DIVIDING THE ESTATE by Pulitzer Prize and Oscar-winning Horton Foote. Matriarch Stella Gordon keeps her aging and money-strapped children on a short financial leash with no plans to split her 100-year old estate. But the kids have other ideas.

Tom Key masterfully directs a splendid ensemble cast: everyone brings something of interest to their roles. I was especially impressed with Marianne Hammock as the adult daughter Lucille, a part the actress seems to slip into and inhabit effortlessly, as if she’d been born to play it.

Directed by Tom Key, the show boasts some of Atlanta’s most well-known talent, and they do not disappoint. It couldn’t have been better cast. Each one brings a unique aspect and vivid detail to the his or her character, creating a captivating performance.
- Kenny Norton, Atlanta Theater Fans
 
As with August: Osage County, it’s a long, interesting, darkly funny, many-peopled story. Where it surpasses August is in its richness, its sense of history, present and future; the sense of complicated, if unsavory, relationships between its people. The Westons of Osage County were cruel, selfish, shallow and coarse, and so are the Gordons in their way. But Foote’s story is sociological as well as psychological.
- Andrew Alexander, ArtsAtl

  

The NY Daily News declares, "DIVIDING THE ESTATE goes for laughs and succeeds, and at the same time comments on more sweeping notions of avarice, entitlement and carpet-bagging karma." Featuring some of Atlanta’s finest and most beloved talent, DIVIDING THE ESTATE is “good news for theatergoers.” — New York Times

 Running Time: 2 hours, with 10 minute intermission.
