Written by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Horton Foote, Night Seasons is anchored around the 93rd birthday of matriarch Josie Weems. Having outlived her daughter and husband, she finds that her biggest curse is longevity. Set in Harrison, Texas, the play moves back and forth through time, following the events of the Weems family as they try to find their place in the world. Unable to stand up against his wife, Mr. Weems, a banker, saves money for his daughter, Laura Lee, to do as she pleases. However, with no control over her own finances, Laura Lee finds her chances for independence constantly thwarted by her father, mother and brother.

BroadwayWorld - Recommended

"...The show is not without its problems. Quiet moments are sometimes too quiet to hear and the disparity in accent work detracts from a cohesive experience. But all things considered, Quotidian Theatre Company is a charming theatre, filled with a warm, receptive audience eager to laugh, gasp, and occasionally comment aloud. They are a company on a mission to find beauty and poetry in the everyday."

"...Night Seasons is not the best play that Horton Foote wrote in his 60-year career. However, it does give voice to some of his favorite themes, including the stranglehold exercised in some small towns."

MD Theatre Guide - Highly Recommended

"...If Tennessee Williams were to rewrite Anton Chekov's "Three Sisters," I imagine it would look and feel a lot like Horton Foote's "Night Seasons." Foote has a sympathy for his characters that is so rarely seen and refreshing. I can't think of a better play for a theatre company "finding truth and beauty in the everyday.""

"...This is a slow play, and it is made slower by the actors' delivery. In an excellent show, the actors come in hard on each other's lines, as though they are giving voice to heartfelt and spontaneous emotions. Here, the actors pause before their lines - not always, but frequently enough to remind us that we are in a play, instead of watching real life. I specifically exempt Decker and Russell from this criticism; indeed, Russell's duels with Dubov, along with Stephanie Mumford's fabulous costumes, are the best parts of the play."
