“…this is Foote as unapologetic potboiler, half-Chekhov, half-Dallas, and great gooey gobs of grim Suhthun’ fun.” —New York Magazine.
“…endearing monsters…It’s impossible to look away.” —Variety.

His central themes of the sense of belonging and longing for home have resonated with audiences for decades.
