Susan Hood of the Hartford Courant calls Dividing the Estate “Divine” and declares it “an unequivocal winning conclusion to Hartford Stage‘s 45th season.”
Ms. Hood continues,
“Dividing the Estate,” like most of Foote’s work, is set in an imaginary, small Texas town and explores the universal theme of what constitutes “home.” But it stands apart as a rib-tickling satire, and although set in late 1980s Texas, a time of economic fiasco, this comedy of family dissension and individual moral faults is timeless.
The cast coheres as a brilliant ensemble, and each actor deserves kudos, as does director Wilson.
