Inheritance battle brings laughs

By Lisa Lynch

Stella Gordon is determined not to divide her 100-year-old Texas Estate, despite her family’s declining wealth and the looming financial crisis. But her three children have another plan. Old resentments and sibling rivalries surface as the members of this hilariously dysfunctional family go head to head to see who might claim the biggest piece of the pie. Don’t miss Horton Foote’s epic production that The New York Times calls “A masterwork. A must for discriminating theatergoers…”

Dividing the Estate is directed by Ken Zimmerman (Virginia Woolf) and features Resident Company Member Irene Crist (August: Osage County), Lisa Wilson, Christina Wellford Scott (A Man of No Importance), and David Foster (Jacques Brel, Grey Gardens).

Dividing the Estate runs at The Circuit Playhouse July 8 – July 31, Thursdays through Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm. The Pay-What-You-Can performance is Thursday, July 14. The Circuit Playhouse is located at 51 S. Cooper in Midtown. For more information or to make reservations, please call 901-726-4656 or go online to
