See the final dress rehearsal of this 1995 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Horton Foote, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of To Kill a Mockingbird and Tender Mercies. The Young Man from Atlanta is the story about a Texas couple's attempt to make sense of the death of their son, which becomes more complicated when the man he had been "rooming with" in Atlanta arrives. Called a “beautifully wrought and very moving play” by Variety, this profound story explores grief, faith, sexual orientation, race relations, and the American dream.
