WHAT: Staged reading of Horton Foote's play "Cousins"
"Cousins," the eighth play in the cycle, reunites Horace with his mother and sister. Horace travels to Houston when his mother becomes ill and he is again confronted with the same issues he failed to resolve with his sister, Lily Dale, years before. "Cousins," continues the exploration of the relationship between mother, brother and sister that began in "Lily Dale," an earlier play in the cycle.
The Orphans' Home Cycle will culminate in the summer of 2000 with a world-premiere production of Foote's play "The Day Emily Married."
