SHOW SYNOPSIS The Gordons of Harrison, Texas, have always been a greedy, gossipy clan. Now the malcontents from the Houston branch of the family come to the homestead and make pettiness an art form as they tangle over their inheritances. This play echoes the domestic drama Cat on a Hot Tin Roof with rich humor reflecting Foote’s generous spirit and Texas roots.
