|Horton Foote’s masterpiece, The Trip to Bountiful, was blessed by Jane Squier Bruns’ performance as Carrie Watts. Foote’s A Coffin in Egypt, starring Bruns, provides a moving tale of the dramatic life of a ninety-year-old Texas widow.
||Conor McPherson’s early St Nicholas helped to establish his reputation as a young playwright. The tale tells of a Dublin theatre critic who runs into vampires while following an actress to London. This is an ideal choice for Steve Beall, who triumphed with McPherson’s plays such as Port Authority, The Seafarer, and Shining City.
