Family troubles open DMT season
Submitted By Marsha Howard
In "Dividing the Estate," Horton Foote shows us a darkly comic portrait of a family divided. In 1987 in Harrison, Texas, the Gordon family has fallen on hard times, what with the '80s oil bust. Mama's dead set against splitting up the 100-year old estate, but her children have other plans as they gather round the dining table to squabble about their righteous share of the pie. Will this life of ease and entitlement soon be coming to an end?
The show opens at the Douglas Morrisson Theatre with a preview performance on Thursday, February 23 at 8 p.m. and continues through March 18. Tickets are $10 for the preview, with Saturday matinees $20 for adults, $15 for seniors 60 and over, and $12 for students, juniors and TBA members with ID. Evening performances and Sunday matinees are $28 for adults, $25 for seniors, and $20 for students, juniors and TBA members. Purchase tickets online at www.dmtonline.org or call the Box Office at (510) 881-6777.
