Once a family of comfortable wealth, the Gordon’s now find themselves facing a looming financial crisis. The only asset left is the family’s Texas estate but matriarch Stella is determined not to divide the 100 year old property. Her three children have other ideas and set out to convince Stella to go with their plan and come into some money. Old resentments and sibling rivalries surface as the members of this quirky, dysfunctional family connive to see who will claim the biggest piece of the pie in Dividing the Estate.
“Dividing the Estate goes for laughs and succeeds, and at the same time comments on more sweeping notions of avarice, entitlement and carpet bagging karma." —NY Daily News
