The New York premiere of Jane Anderson’s play Mother of the Maid has extended a second time. The Public Theater production, starring Tony winner and Oscar nominee Glenn Close, will now play an additional three weeks through December 23.
Close will play Isabelle Arc, Joan of Arc’s mother, who offers a rarely-seen perspective to the story behind the historical figure. Performances will begin September 25 ahead of an October 17 opening.
As previously reported, joining Close in the Off-Broadway production will be Dermot Crowley (The Weir) as Jacques Arc, Olivia Gillatt (Pushkin) as Monique, Kate Jennings Grant (Noises Off) as Lady of the Court, Andrew Hovelson (Lucky Guy) as Pierre Arc, Daniel Pearce (Machinal) as Father Gilbert, and Grace Van Patten (The Whirligig) as Joan.
The Matthew Penn-helmed production will feature sets by John Lee Beatty, costumes by Jane Greenwood, lighting design by Lap Chi Chu, and sound design and original music by Alexander Sovronsky and Joanna Lynne Staub.
