A COFFIN IN EGYPT
April 8th – 17th, 2022
The Plaza Theatre, on Monterey Square in Wharton, is proud to present A Coffin in Egypt. Written by Wharton’s own literary master Horton Foote and based in the familiar town of Egypt, Texas, it follows a privileged Texan royal trying to make sense of her life’s choices amid class, racial, and women’s issues of the 20th century. The drama, presented in special arrangement with Dramatists Play Service, Inc. and directed by Jenna Crowell, will be performed Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from April 8-17, 2022. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7:30pm, with Sunday matinee performances beginning at 2:30pm.
About the Show: Myrtle Bledsoe, a ninety-year-old Texas widow, looks back on the dramatic events that caused a small Southern town, and her own relationships, incredible strife. This almost-monologue by American master Horton Foote is a haunting tale of how men and women, blacks and whites, rich and poor are all entangled in the chaos of life.
