"Immensely satisfying...crafted with elegance, alive with feeling, holding a mirror up if not to nature, at least to the next best thing, our concept of nature. Not to be missed."- New York Post

Horton Foote's 1995 Pulitzer Prize winning play is a compassionate and often humorous portrayal of a Houston family whose lives are changed forever when a visit from a young stranger forces them to examine their beliefs and reveal their closely guarded secrets. Foote, a veteran writer for theatre, film, television, and radio, is best known for his Academy Award winning screenplays for To Kill A Mockingbird and Tender mercies. Award winning director Peter Masterson, who has directed many of Foote's works including the celebrated film The Trip to Bountiful, will stage this production of The Young Man From Atlanta, the first since its Off Off Broadway debut in January 1995. The Huntington production transferred to Broadway in the spring of 1996.
