The Orphans' Home Cycle

Celebrated playwright and screenwriter Horton Foote was the winner of the 1995 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the 1962 Academy Award for Adapted Screenplay and the 2000 National Medal of Arts. The Orphans' Home Cycle is widely considered to be his crowning masterpiece. The three-play drama follows the life of Horace Robedaux, a character based on Mr. Foote’s father, from the beginning of the 20th century up until the start of the Great Depression. In 2010 the trilogy won the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Play, the Drama Desk Special Award, the Outer Circle Critics Award for Outstanding New Off-Broadway Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.

"Foote's final gift to the stage is glorious, an essential American masterwork..." – BackStage

"...elevated and elemental, like Greek tragedy...the action exists in a kind of suspended reality - not bound by the laws of time and faintly ritualistic...temporal strangeness only heightens the complex pleasures of Foote's melancholy masterpiece." – New York Magazine

These new e-Script titles, and eight others, are now available on the Scene Partner WebStore for only $9.99 each.
