March 3, 2009…Los Angeles The Open Fist Theatre Company presents the third show in their 2010 season, the
Los Angeles Premiere of GETTING FRANKIE MARRIED - AND AFTERWARDS, written by acclaimed
playwright Horton Foote (The Orphans Home Cycle) and directed by Scott Paulin (The Roads to Home, Harrison,
Texas). GETTING FRANKIE MARRIED - AND AFTERWARDS will preview on Friday, March 26 at 8pm;
Saturday, March 27at 8pm; Sunday, March 28 at 2pm and will open on Friday, April 2 at 8pm and run through
Saturday, May 15 at The Open Fist Theatre, 6209 Santa Monica Blvd. in Hollywood.


GETTING FRANKIE MARRIED -AND AFTERWARDS, the late masterpiece from award-winning playwright
and screenwriter Horton Foote tells the star-crossed tale of longtime lovers Frankie and Fred , two apparently
conventional denizens of the conventional little town of Harrison, standing in for the real life hometown of Mr.
Foote, Wharton, Texas. In a style ranging from farce to tragedy GETTING FRANKIE MARRIED - AND
AFTERWARDS wryly observes the chaos that results when a father’s sexual transgression is repeated by his son.
Horton Foote, who died a year ago, a week shy of his ninety-third birthday, is in the middle of a rebirth of
popularity on the New York stage. The Broadway production of Dividing the Estate was nominated for a Tony
Award for Best Play in 2009, and ran to sold out houses at the Booth Theater. His nine-hour epic saga The Orpan’s
Home Cycle is in the seventh month of a sold out run at The Hartford Stage and The Signature Theater, and is
rumored to be short-listed for the Pulitzer Prize. The New York Times recently announced The Orphan’s Home
Cycle will move to Broadway in September of 2010.

GETTING FRANKIE MARRIED---AND AFTERWARDS, completed in 2002, explores the great themes of
Horton Foote’s sixty year career: the longing for stability in the shifting moral universe of everyday life, the
inevitability of change, and the power of love to ennoble everyday life and to disrupt it in equal measure.

dramas. For his 1997 television adaptation of William Faulkner’s “Old Man” he won an Emmy Award for
Outstanding Writing of a Miniseries. He received the Pulitzer Prize and his first Tony nomination for his play The
Young Man From Atlanta. In 1995 he was given the Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Achievement Off-
Broadway and the Outer Critics Circle Special Achievement Award for the 1994-95 Signature Theater Season of his
plays. In 1996 he was elected to the Theater Hall of Fame. In 1998 he was elected to membership in the American
Academy of Arts and Letters, and received from the Academy its Gold Medal of Drama for his body of work. In
2000 he received the PEN/Laura Pels Foundation Award for Drama, New York Stat Governor’s Arts Award, and in
December of that year he was given the National Medal of Arts Award by President Bill Clinton. In 2006 his play

American’s Storyteller by Wilborn Hampton, was released last fall by Simon and Shuster. Mr. Foote’s final play,
the epic nine hour saga of his father’s life in the early twentieth century has been running to sold out houses and
rave reviews at The Signature Theater in New York since last fall. The Wall Street Journal called The Orphan’s
Home Cycle “the most significant theatrical event of the season, the kind of show you tell your grandchildren you
saw.” The Signature Theater production is scheduled to transfer to Broadway in September.
