Dividing the Estate

Written by Horton Foote

Red Phoenix Theatre Company present


Set in the fictional town of Harrison, Texas, in 1987, our story focuses on the Gordons, a clan of malcontents ruled by octogenarian matriarch Stella that must prepare for an uncertain future when plunging real estate values and an unexpected tax bill have a negative impact on the family fortune.

Stella's children - predatory Mary Jo, complacent Lucille, and alcoholic Lewis engage in a debate about whether or not they should divide the estate while their mother is still alive in order to ensure themselves financial independence. A story of families and money. Everyone is very fair and reasonable of course – ahem!!

Featuring the much-loved and award winning Adelaide actor, Jean Walker, Dividing the Estate is not to be missed!

Dividing The Estate cast also includes; Kate Anolak, Wayne Anthoney, Laura Antoniazzi, Eliza Bampton, Brendan Cooney, Gabi Douglas, Lindsay Dunn, Jasmine Leech, Mark Mulders, Cate Rogers, Nicole Walker and Lyn Wilson
