OCC Theatre Company Presents Hilarious Comedy

The Ocean County College Theatre Company present’s Dividing the Estate this March in the Black Box Theatre, Academic Wing, Arts & Community Center (Building #18), OCC Main Campus, College Drive, Toms River, NJ.  Tickets are on sale.  Limited seating is available in the Black Box Theatre.

Horton Foote’s comedy, Dividing the Estate, is about a rapacious Southern family tangling over finances and contains echoes of A Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and The Little Foxes.  Matriarch Stella Gordon is determined not to divide her 100-year-old Texas estate, despite her family’s declining wealth and the looming financial crisis.  But her three children have another plan.  Old resentments and sibling rivalries surface as the members of this hilariously-dysfunctional family go head-to-head to see who might claim the biggest piece of the pie!
