Sample text

No, honey, it wouldn't be Christian. Mrs. Mayberry. Always be sweet to your mother an' daddy, dear. An' don't ever try to send them to an old peoples home. Nadine. 4 Mrs. Mayberry can barely hide her bitterness behind her "sweet" words. But Miss Watts's "honey" pampers her until they seal their conspiracy with the righteous "Christian," which inspires their sermon to Nadine. In The Travelers, as in all Foote's personal dramas, the voices are distinctively those of coastal southeast Texas. But as true as Foote has been to the idioms of Wharton, his own words warn that the notion of homeplaces should not be taken too literally.

Consequently, any understanding of religious context in Foote's dramas begins not with simple affirmations but with dark truths. Although he never explains the differences between people, time and again Foote returns to the essential inequities in the human condition. Men (and women) are not, in his view, created equal; their gifts are distributed with an almost genetic finality. Sadder yet, each person's condition is irreversible, and personal struggles, once they surface, remain as eternal conflicts and challenges.

He has written about a minister in crisis (Ludie Brooks) and the devolution of religious experience (The Land of the Astronauts), but those plays are exceptions. And even when Foote creates religious characters, they are full of doubt, indecision, guilt, and anxiety, just like the nonbelievers. Carrie Watts, for instance, is a deeply religious woman who takes strength from the "blessed assurance" that the Lord will lead her home. Nevertheless, feelings of loss, remorse, and even self-obsession, accompany her when she returns to Bountiful.
