From the Academy Award-winning screenwriter of To Kill a Mockingbird, Horton Foote, comes Courtship.
The God-fearing foundation of the Vaughns’ household begins to crack as young Elizabeth’s secret engagement is revealed.

To what extent is real rebellion possible for her - and how well does she know herself?

Snakeskin Jacket—John Hirsch Mainstage

Early twentieth century charm and well-to-do affect suffuses the deep personal relationships forming the bedrock of the show, with charming conversations to demonstrate them. The romantic aspirations of our lead are perfectly presented, and the contrasting stuffy, oppressive standards of her father and mother are equally well articulated. Well written and directed, with strong acting backing everything up, the only real question is if you’re looking for a period piece romantic semi-comedy.
