Her father Horton Foote directed When They Speak Of Rita in an extended run off Broadway at Primary Stages. Her other productions include God’s Pictures, produced by the Indiana Repertory Theatre for their main stage and Farley And Betsey produced by the Women’s Project. She was honored with the Roger L.
