Overview

Daisy Foote adapts Horton Foote's Oscar-winning screenplay Tender Mercies for the stage.  Mac Sledge was the King of Country married to the Queen, Dixie Scott, but the bottle and jealousy tore their family apart.  Rosa Lee Wadsworth lost her young husband in Vietnam and now she and her boy Sonny live quietly alone.  By the time Mac turns up drunk at Rosa Lee's three-cabin Texas roadside motel, he is a divorced has-been who hasn’t seen his daughter in years.  Rosa Lee’s and Mac's dare for a second chance together tests their faith and love in this powerful story of human endurance and forgiveness.
