Horton Foote, preeminent American dramatist, has had a career spanning more than fifty years. His latest play tells the story of Alberta Thornton, the last surviving member of the powerful Thornton clan of Harrison, Texas. As she confronts the end of her life, Alberta shares an entertaining and touching lifetime of memories, including both pride and misgivings about her family's legacy, as she struggles to let go of unrealized dreams and a lost way of life.

The recipient of a grant from the 1999 Kennedy Center Fund for New American Plays, with a high-profile production at the Signature Theatre Company in the fall of 2000, The Last of the Thorntons is the work of an American master and the latest volume in the joint publishing venture between The Overlook Press and The Sewanee Writers' Conference.
