The season commences with The Day Emily Married. Estelle Parsons, William Biff McGuire and Hallie Foote will star in the tale of two newlyweds moving in with the bride's aging parents, and the trouble that ensues. Michael Wilson directs the July 21-Aug. 29 run. Michele Lowe's String of Pearls, running Sept. 15-Oct. 24, had its world premiere last fall at City Theatre in Pittsburgh. In the new play by the author of the Broadway play Smell of the Kill, the fate of a necklace links the stories of 23 women.

Willy Holtzman's Sabina, which ran at Primary Stages in the mid-90s, returns Jan. 19-Feb. 27, 2005. The drama looks at the story of Sabina Speilrein, the mentally fragile woman who brought Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud together. A pre-"Once and Again" Marin Hinkle starred in the original production.

Last in the line-up is Lee Blessing's Going to St. Ives, a high-stakes drama centering on two women, a British eye surgeon and the mother of a cruel African dictator. The New York premiere will run March 16-April 24, 2005.
