Public Theater's SORRY Extends Through 12/2

Due to popular demand, The Public Theater (Artistic Director Oskar Eustis and Executive Director Patrick Willingham) announced today that the critically acclaimed Public Lab production of Sorry will extend one final week to Sunday, December 2. Sorry, written and directed by Richard Nelson, opened on Tuesday, November 6 to unanimously positive reviews and was originally scheduled to close on November 18. It was extended one additional week to November 25 but strong demand has extended it one final week. All tickets for the extension weeks are $30 and can be purchased at (212) 967-7555, www.publictheater.org, or in person at The Public Theater box office at 425 Lafayette Street.

The cast features Jon Devries (Benjamin Apple), Maryann Plunkett (Barbara Apple), Laila Robins (Marian Apple Platt), Jay O. Sanders (Richard Apple), and J. Smith-Cameron (Jane Apple Halls).

A year after Sweet and Sad, the Apple family again share a meal in Rhinebeck, as they sort through personal and political feelings of loss and confusion on the morning of the day the country will choose the next president. Like the first two plays in this series, Sweet and Sad and That Hopey Changey Thing, Sorry opened on the day that it is set, November 6, 2012 - Election Day.

SORRY features scenic and costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Jennifer Tipton, and sound design by Scott Lehrer and Will Pickens.

His other plays include Nikolai and the Others, Goodnight Children Everywhere (Olivier Award, Best Play), Two Shakespearean Actors (Tony Nomination, Best Play), Some Americans Abroad (Olivier Nomination, Best Comedy), Madame Melville, New England, Frank’s Home, Rodney’s Wife, Franny’s Way, The General from America, The Vienna Notes (Obie Award) and others.
