Our Mother's Brief Affair, the new play by Tony Award winner Richard Greenberg, directed by MTC's award-winning artistic director Lynne Meadow, is now in previews and opens tonight, January 20 at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street). Check out a first look at the cast in action below!

The cast of Our Mother's Brief Affair stars Tony and two-time Golden Globe Award winner Linda Lavin, joined by 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).

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 Broadway 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 proves that looks may be deceiving as our perception of our parents may be different than who they really are.

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.
