Dividing the Estate; The Gallerist; 9 Circles

Dividing the EstateThe Old Globe, San Diego(619) 234-5623Horton Foote understood that “nothing binds a family together quite like the strife that tears them apart,” said The San Diego Union-Tribune. At the Old Globe, Foote’s daughter Hallie and son Horton Jr. help capture “the bittersweet wit” of their father’s play about a squabbling Texas clan that believes a fortune is coming its way.

The GalleristRorschach Theatre, Washington, D.C.(202) 399-7993Fengar Gael’s new drama “strives mightily to avoid any contact with the typical,” said The Washington Post. A story about a New York gallery owner’s discovery of a treasure trove, it’s “a fusion of Gothic Freudian intrigue and lesbian romance” that deserves a braver staging.

9 CirclesCurious Theatre, Denver(303) 623-0524Based on the true story of a horrific war crime in Iran, Bill Cain’s drama is “soaked in ambiguity,” said the Boulder Daily Camera. Sean Scrutchins gives “a stunning turn” as Pvt. Daniel Reeves, a “deeply damaged soldier” who’s convicted of committing rape and murder but makes justice’s apparent triumph feel hollow.
