Foote fest at Primary Stages

Ives also on 2012-13 slate

Four plays written by two members of the Foote family and a revival of “All in the Timing” are on tap for the 2012-13 season at Off Broadway’s Primary Stages.

First up is a triple-bill of three short plays by the late Horton Foote, whose play “Dividing the Estate” was previously produced by Primary Stages prior to a Broadway transfer. Pam MacKinnon (“Clybourne Park”) will helm “Harrison, TX: Three Plays by Horton Foote,” a trio of works set in the Texas town in which most of Foote’s stories take place.

Consisting of “Blind Date,” “The One-Armed Man” and “The Midnight Caller,” “Harrison, TX” runs July 24-Sept. 15.

Next on the slate is “Him,” a new play by Foote’s daughter, Daisy Foote. Helmed by Evan Yionoulis, the play centers on siblings who grapple with their father’s dying wishes while working to keep the family store going. Show runs Sept. 21-Oct. 27.

Hallie Foote, another of Horton Foote’s daughters and an actress who frequently appears in her father’s work, will star in both “Harrison, TX” and “Him.”

Final announced outing of the season is “All in the Timing,” a revival of the David Ives (“Venus in Fur”) play that proved a hit for Primary Stages when it bowed in 1993. Helmed by John Rando (“Urinetown”), the 20th anniversary staging of the anthology of comic one-acts runs Jan. 22-March 3, 2013.

One more production remains to be announced.
