The Orphans' Home Cycle

I've had the privilege of seeing many fine theatre productions over the years but I cannot recall being so moved as I was recently.

About five years ago I became a subscriber to the Signature Theatre, an "off-Broadway" theatre on West 42nd Street, which stages one playwright each year. This season it is Horton Foote.

Foote's The Orphan's Home Cycle is presented in three parts with three one-act plays in each part. It is a wonderful play superbly acted. There is a chance that it will be staged on Broadway next year.

If you read the review of the play in today's New York Times I think you'll want to order your ticket.
