The New York premiere of Jane Anderson’s play about Joan of Arc, Mother of the Maid, officially opens at The Public Theater October 17. Leading the cast as Isabelle Arc, Joan of Arc’s mother, is Tony winner and Oscar nominee Glenn Close, alongside Grace Van Patten as Joan.
Mother of the Maid, directed by Matthew Penn, began performances September 25 at The Public Theater. The play details the relationship between Joan of Arc and her family, including her mother, a sensible, hard-working, God-fearing peasant woman.
Following two extensions, the production will continue through December 23.
Van Patten and Close are joined onstage by 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, and Daniel Pearce (Machinal) as Father Gilbert.
