THE STORY: Matriarch Mamie Borden and the remaining members of two longtime Texas farming families await a visit from Mamie's son Hugo and his wife, Sybil.

When Sybil arrives, alone, with alarming news, old friends on opposing sides must confront the issues surrounding legacy, loyalty, and the meaning of happiness that have hounded them for generations.

THE OLD FRIENDS is an absorbing and vital chapter in Foote's beloved and distinctly American body of work.
