The Story of a Family, which comprises the plays plays 1918, Cousins and The Death of Papa, began previews Jan. 7. The third installment of the nine-play cycle joins The Story of a Childhood and The Story of Marriage, all of which run in repertory through March 28.
According to press notes, The Orphans' Home Cycle "begins with a father's death in a small-Texas town at the turn of the century, a loss that sends his son, Horace Robedaux, on an odyssey through the darkest corners of his heart as he learns to become a husband, father, and patriarch."
Michael Wilson directs The Orphans' Home Cycle featuring a cast of 22 actors lead by Tony Award-nominated Hallie Foote (Dividing The Estate) as Mary Vaughn, Bill Heck ("The Closer," "Medium") in the central role of Horace Robedaux, Maggie Lacey (Dividing The Estate) as his wife, Elizabeth Vaughn Robedaux, and James DeMarse (Dividing the Estate, The Trip to Bountiful) as Henry Vaughn.
Rounding out the cast are Devon Abner, Mike Boland, Pat Bowie, Leon Addison Brown, Justin Fuller, Jasmine Harrison, Henry Hodges, Annalee Jefferies, Virginia Kull, Gilbert Owuor, Jenny Dare Paulin, Pamela Payton-Wright, Bryce Pinkham, Stephen Plunkett, Emily Robinson, Lucas Caleb Rooney, Dylan Riley Snyder and Charles Turner.
