The Young Man From Atlanta
Stone Soup Theatre proudly presents
Horton Foote's Pulitzer Prizewinning Young Man from Atlanta
Stone Soup Theatre announces the Seattle debut of the late Horton Foote's The Young Man from Atlanta, winner of the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The production will open in February 2012 at the DownStage Theatre in Wallingford.
Revisiting characters first seen in Foote's nine-play magnum opus, The Orphans Home cycle, this elegant and heart-rending drama was written near the end of a career that includes over 52 stage plays, several screenplays and two Academy Award wins (Screenplays for Tender Mercies & To Kill A Mockingbird). In this compassionate and occasionally humorous portrait of an affluent family's transformation as they face significant mid-life losses, Foote's characters reveal secrets and confront truths they had been unwilling to examine until crises force them to reevaluate the true meaning of "success".
Directed by Maureen Hawkins (Durang7), audiences are promised a subtle, yet unsettling theatrical journey as one American dream crumbles and the foundation for an uncertain future, a new American reality is begun. The production also features the talents of Eva Abram, John Clark, Gordon Coffey, Jaryl Draper, Matthew Gilbert, Maggie Heffernan, Maria Knox, Maureen Miko, Lindsey Morck, Zachariah Robinson, Chris Scofield, Suzi Tucker, Michael Way and Carolynne Wilcox.
The production runs evenings, Thursday Saturday, February 17 March 10 with two Sunday matinees on Feb 26 and March 4. Evening showtimes are 8:00 pm, while Sunday matinees are at 4:00 pm. $11 preview tickets will be available Feb 15-17. General admission prices are $16-22; $14 for those under 30. All Thursdays after the preview are Pay What You Will.
