Read full description of the books Dividing the Estate:The first Horton Foote play I've ever read. I'm interested in writers who spend a lot of time building one world over the course of their careers, and the Texas world Foote built is clearly on display here, from the petty jealousies that rock a family, to the economic realities that will bring their oil kingdom down.
Overall, it's hard to tell what this play builds to; it's Chekhovian in its lack of accomplishment by any one character. And the last second arrival of a new character distracted me, rather than gave me clarity. But the play is worth looking at, if only to read a man who's mastered his own voice over the course of what was a very long career.
