Three years later, she co-founded Kentucky's Pilgrim Repertory Theatre, then spent the next two decades appearing in one Broadway production after another. In the early 1990s she reemerged on the film scene as a character actress, essaying such roles as the "Cheese Lady" in The Night We Never Met (1993) and Mrs. Hale in Ethan Frome (1994). In addition to her extensive acting credits, Katharine Houghton is a prolific novelist, screenwriter and playwright.
