Powerhouse Casting: THE OLD FRIENDS @ Signature

Betty Buckley Horton Foot Signature Theater

Betty Buckley, Hallie Foote and Lois Smith will star in the world premiere of THE OLD FRIENDS, a new play by Horton Foote as part of Signature Theater's 2013-2014 season.

The description reads, "matriarch Mamie Borden and the remaining members of two longtime Texas farming families await a visit from Mamie's son Hugo and his wife Sybil. When Sybil arrives with alarming news, old friends on opposing sides must confront the issues surrounding legacy, loyalty, and the meaning of happiness that have hounded them for generations."

We can't think of three better actresses to be cast in this production, that will be directed by Michael Wilson who previously directed Signature's production of The Orphans' Home Cycle and is currently represented on Broadway by A Trip to Bountiful with Cecily Tyson. 

THE OLD FRIENDS will run August 20 - September 29, 2013.
