Kate Arrington, Greg Keller & John Procaccino Join Linda Lavin in MTC's OUR MOTHER'S BRIEF AFFAIR
Manhattan Theatre Club has announced full casting for the upcoming New York premiere of Our Mother's Brief Affair, the new play by Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg, directed by MTC's award-winning artistic director Lynne Meadow.
Joining previously announced Tony and two-time Golden Globe Award winner Linda Lavin, at yesterday's first rehearsal were Kate Arrington (Grace, The Qualms), Greg Keller (Of Good Stock at MTC, Belleville), and John Procaccino (An Enemy of the People at MTC, Incident at Vichy).
The limited engagement of Our Mother's Brief Affair will begin previews Monday, December 28 and open Wednesday, January 20 at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).
Tony and two-time Golden Globe winner Linda Lavin (Collected Stories, The Tale of the Allergist's Wife) returns to MTC in Our Mother's Brief Affair, a new play making its New York premiere. From the team behind The Assembled Parties - Tony-winning writer Richard Greenberg (Three Days of Rain, Take Me Out) and award-winning MTC artistic director Lynne Meadow (The Commons of Pensacola, Wit) - this innovative work challenges us to look at who our parents are when they're not being our parents.
On the verge of death for the umpteenth time, Anna (Linda Lavin) makes a shocking confession to her grown children: an affair from her past that just might have resonance beyond the family. But how much of what she says is true? While her children try to separate fact from fiction, Anna fights for a legacy she can be proud of. With razor-sharp wit and extraordinary insight, Our Mother's Brief Affair considers the sweeping, surprising impact of indiscretions both large and small.
Our Mother's Brief Affair marks the 11th collaboration between Greenberg and Manhattan Theatre Club.
