FEATURES / CONTAINS

Bare Stage/Simple Set

In funny, moving, engaging monologues, three sisters spin the tale of their family and an era. Their father, the eponymous carpetbagger, was a former Union soldier who used his post as county treasurer and tax collector to amass a Texas plantation of twenty thousand acres. Preserving that plantation through the vicissitudes of their lives becomes a central issue for his daughters, Cornelia, Grace Anne and Sissie. With echoes of The Three Sisters and King Lear, THE CARPETBAGGER'S CHILDREN explores the bonds of a family to the land that has shaped their identity, influenced their destiny and, like the family itself, undergone dramatic change with the passage of time.
"…bittersweet music—[a] rhapsody of ambivalence…in its modest, garrulous way, [the play] is theatrically daring." —The New Yorker.
