Stuart Howard directs the production, which began performances Feb. 4 and was recently extended through April 5. The Mint cast includes Eric Martin Brown, Allyn Burrows, Julia Coffey, Nick Cordileone, Randy Danson, Dalton Harrod, Emma Kantor, Arthur Lazalde, Amanda Roberts, Sheila Stasack, James Warke, Lance Wertz and Pilar Witherspoon.

The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd, according to press notes, "is the story of a marriage in trouble. It is the story of a husband trying to escape the scorn and bitterness of a woman who resents the hold he has on her. It is the story of a wife trying desperately to make a safe home for her young children amidst the coarseness of a soot-blackened coal mining village—safe from her drunken husband, from her meddling mother-in-law—and from the passion of the man who wants to take her away."

Designing the production are Marion Williams (set design), Martha Hally (costume design), Jeff Nellis (lighting design) and Jane Shaw (sound design).

Tickets are available by phoning (212) 315-0231. The Mint Theater Company is located at 311 West 43rd Street in New York.
