QTC Finishes Its 2016-17 Season With Horton Foote’s NIGHT SEASONS

The play is framed by the occasion of Josie’s 93rd birthday, on which the elderly woman, who has outlived her husband and daughter, begins to realize that her longevity may be her punishment.

“Night Seasons is an examination of the quietly destructive effects of a life defined by bank balances.  (Daughter) Laura Lee is shown as an unwilling but passive prisoner of this sensibility, who watched as her mother, father and ambitious brother sabotaged her chances for independence. Suitors were dismissed as financially undesirable and, in her 30s, she was still living with her parents in rented hotel rooms and, later, an apartment, while pining for a home of her own.” Ben Brantley, The New York Times

Directed by Jack Sbarbori. Jane Squier Bruns and Carolyn Kashner lead a cast comprising  Quotidian Theatre Company (QTC) favorites–John Decker, David Dubov, and Laura Russell–as well as a number of talented newcomers.
