Foote’s ‘Emily’ set for Primary Stages season

'String of Pearls' gets Gotham preview

Flush from its success with Terrence McNally’s “The Stendhal Syndrome,” Primary Stages will mark its 20th-anniversary season this summer.

Michael Wilson directs Estelle Parsons, William Biff McGuire and Hallie Foote in Horton Foote’s latest, “The Day Emily Married,” about a bride and groom who come home to live with her parents. Previews begin July 21.

The season continues Sept. 15 with the first New York preview of “String of Pearls” by Michele Lowe, author of “Smell of the Kill.”

On Jan. 19, Primary Stages revives its production of Willy Holtzman’s “Sabina.” Based on Aldo Carotenuto’s book “A Secret Symmetry,” the play documents the life of Sabina Spielrein and her relationship with Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud, also the subject of Christopher Hampton’s “The Talking Cure.”

The 2004-05 season concludes with “Going to St. Ives” by Lee Blessing, making his Primary Stages debut. Previews begin March 16 for the play, in which the mother of a monstrous dictator in Africa raises serious questions about her son.
