The Treasurer, a new play by Max Posner, has extended its world premiere at Playwrights Horizons following critical acclaim. The production, which officially opened September 26 following previews that began September 6, will now continue an additional two weeks through November 5 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theater (416 West 42nd Street).
Performances had originally been scheduled to run through October 22.
Leading the cast are Tony winner Deanna Dunagan (August: Osage County) and Tony nominee Peter Friedman (Ragtime). With direction by The Band's Visit director David Cromer, the Off-Broadway production also includes Marinda Anderson (Bella: An American Tall Tale) and Pun Bandhu (Wit).
In Posner’s The Treasurer, a mother and her son are forced to rethink their relationship (and their past) when he assumes the unwanted position of managing her finances—which are fast dwindling along with her happiness and her senses. “In this darkly funny, sharply intimate portrait, Max Posner chronicles the strained ties between a son and his aging mother, and the hell of a guilty conscience,“ read production notes from Playwrights Horizons.
The production features scenic design by Lortel Award winner Laura Jellinek, costume design by David Hyman, lighting design by Tony Award winner Bradley King, sound design by two-time Lortel Award winner Mikhail Fiksel, and projection design by Lucy Mackinnon. Production stage manager is Brett Anders.
Also playing at Playwrights Horizons Off-Broadway is Sarah Ruhl’s For Peter Pan on Her 70th Birthday.
