The world-premiere run of Amy Herzog's critically acclaimed drama The Great God Pan, about a Brooklyn journalist recovering memories of possible past sexual abuse, will get a second extension by Off-Broadway's Playwrights Horizons, now to Jan. 13, 2013.
The play by Obie Award-winning playwright Herzog (After the Revolution at PH, 4000 Miles) was originally set to play a limited engagement through Dec. 30. It originally extended to Jan. 6 at PH's Mainstage Theater at 416 W. 42nd Street. The new additional week represents the final extension possible, and includes a special Wednesday matinee on Jan. 9 at 2:30 PM.
Under the direction of Carolyn Cantor, The Great God Pan began previews Nov. 24 and opened Dec. 18.
Here's how PH bills the 80-minute play: "Jamie's (Strong) life in Brooklyn seems just fine: a beautiful girlfriend (Goldberg), a budding journalism career, and parents (Ms. Baker and Mr. Friedman) who live just far enough away. But when a possible childhood trauma comes to light, lives are thrown into a tailspin. Unsettling and deeply compassionate, The Great God Pan tells the intimate tale of what is lost and won when a hidden truth is unloosed into the world."
