Horton Foote Tribute

Texan playwright Horton Foote died in March of this year. Yesterday, friends and family gathered to pay tribute to this quiet man and his remarkable talent.

“Horton Foote wrote tough, serious plays about people to whom nothing happened, except that they lived their lives. Horton never wrote a character in any of his plays. Horton only wrote people.”

On the day Horton Foote died (God rest his gentle soul) I mourned with those who share my appreciation for his tender magnificence. I thought of my students, my daughter (Lara Butler) and Greg Wilbur.

Interestingly, I thought of you too. He died on my birthday.
