Tony Award nominee Jayne Houdyshell, Mary Bacon and Evan Jonigkeit will join previously announced Tony nominee Hallie Foote as part of Primary Stages' production of Horton Foote's three-play collection Harrison, TX.

As previously reported, Tony Award-nominated Clybourne Park director Pam MacKinnon will stage the triptych made up of late playwright Foote's Blind Date, The One-Armed Man and The Midnight Caller. Foote's plays will be presented July 24-Sept. 15.

Harrison, TX, which explores the "humor, darkness, and romance of the people of the titular town," will include the playwright's daughter, Tony nominee Hallie Foote (Dividing the Estate), as well as Tony nominee Houdyshell (Follies, Well), Mary Bacon (Eccentricities of a Nightingale, Rock 'N' Roll), Evan Jonigkeit (High), Devon Abner (Dividing the Estate), Jeremy Bobb (Is He Dead?, Shipwrecked), Alexander Cendese (A View From the Bridge), Andrea Lynn Green (Giant) and Jenny Dare Paulin (Dividing the Estate).

The production will have scenic design by Marion Williams, costume design by Kaye Voyce, lighting design by Tyler Micoleau, and original music and sound design by Broken Chord.

Primary Stages premiered Foote's Dividing the Estate prior to its Tony Award-nominated Broadway run in 2008.
