The Peccadillo Theater Company's revival of Sidney Howard’s 1926 play The Silver Cord, which officially opened June 11 following previews that began June 5, plays its final performance at Theatre at St. Clement's July 14.

Obie winner Dan Wackerman directed.

The cast features Wilson Bridges (Academy, Signs of Life), Dale Carman (City of Hope, Dogfight, Peccadillo’s Room Service), Caroline Kaplan (Three Sisters, Williamstown; Going Live!, Guthrie), Thomas Matthew Kelley (“How to Make It in America,” Love Goes to Press) and Victoria Mack (“The Good Wife,” Broadway’s Venus in Fur).

The Silver Cord, one of the most successful entries of the 1926-27 Broadway season, "centers on a domineering matriarch who is pathologically close to her two adult sons," according to press notes. Originally starring Laura Hope Crews, the play opened Dec. 20, 1926, at the Golden Theatre, running for 232 performances. Crews subsequently starred in the 1933 RKO film version with Irene Dunne and Joel McCrea, directed by John Cromwell.

The production featured scenic and lighting design by Harry Feiner with costume design by Gail Cooper-Hecht.
