"Horton Foote is an artist of spiritual transcendence. His chracters are the conflicts of the soul struggling for inner peace. At the center of his plays is loneliness, loss, grief, fear, courage and love: the existential state of our common humanity." - Robert Ellermann, from the Introduction

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
The three new entries in Smith and Kraus’ Contemporary Playwrights Series each contain noteworthy plays otherwise available only in staple-bound acting editions. Oh, Foote’s touching Trip to Bountiful, familiar and independently published thanks to the 1985 movie with its Oscar-winning performance by Geraldine Page, is an exception to that rule, but its companion - The Chase, The Traveling Lady, and The Road to Home - are less known and shouldn’t be. Each is a gem, as carefully carved and polished as Bountiful.
