In this World Premiere play by Signature Legacy Playwright Horton Foote, matriarch Mamie Borden and the remaining members of two longtime Texas farming families await a visit from Mamie’s son Hugo and his wife Sybil. When Sybil arrives with alarming news, old friends on opposing sides must confront the issues surrounding legacy, loyalty, and the meaning of happiness that have hounded them for generations. Helmed by Michael Wilson, director of Signature’s acclaimed 2009 production of The Orphans’ Home Cycle, The Old Friends is an absorbing and vital chapter in Foote’s beloved, distinctly American body of work. Betty Buckley, Hallie Foote and Lois Smith are featured in the production. For more information, please visit www.signaturetheatre.org.
