Buck Henry and Holland Taylor Cast in Ebersole's Mother
11 May 2009
Buck Henry and Holland Taylor will co-star in the new Lisa Ebersole play Mother for Off-Broadway's The Wild Project.
The New York Times reports that Andrew Grosso will direct the limited engagement, which begins July 8. Performances will continue through Aug. 1.
Ebersole's play, according to the New York daily, concerns "an eccentric family and a champagne-fueled New Year's holiday of revelations and rivalries."
Buck Henry has split his career between screenwriting ("The Graduate," "To Die For") and acting ("Short Cuts," the Off-Broadway play Three Viewings). His Broadway credits include Art, The Graduate and Morning's at Seven.
Holland Taylor has been seen on Broadway in The Devils, Butley, We Interrupt This Program, Murder Among Friends, Moose Murders and Something Old, Something New. She can be seen on the CBS series "Two and a Half Men."
The Wild Project is located at 195 East 3rd Street in Manhattan.

Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
