Over the history of the organization, Primary Stages has collaborated often with Horton Foote, welcoming New York audiences to visit Foote's small town Texas families. From the New York premiere of The Day Emily Married to the Tony Award nominated transfer of Dividing the Estate, Primary Stages has served as a creative home for the playwright and his family, also producing the plays of Daisy Foote and featuring performances from his daughter HAllie Footeand his son-in-law Devon Abner. In celebration of the Centennial, Primary Stages will be revisiting Horton Foote's The Roads to Home, directed by Foote's longtime director, Michael Wilson and featuring performances from actors who have previously worked with Foote.

Primary Stages will open their 2016/17 season with a new production of Horton Foote's THE ROADS TO HOME, directed by Michael Wilson (The Trip to Bountiful). Previews begin on September 14, with opening night set for October 5 at The Cherry Lane Theatre.
