MOTHER OF THE MAID

Anspacher Theater

September 25 - December 23

Estimated Run Time 2 hours and 10 minutes with one intermission

New York Premiere

Written by Jane Anderson
Directed by Matthew Penn

Six-time Academy Award nominee and three-time Tony and Emmy winner Glenn Close (Sunset Boulevard, "Damages") returns in a breathtaking new play by Emmy winner Jane Anderson ("Olive Kitteridge," The Baby DanceDefying Gravity). 

MOTHER OF THE MAID tells the story of Joan of Arc’s mother (Glenn Close), a sensible, hard-working, God-fearing peasant woman whose faith is upended as she deals with the baffling journey of her odd and extraordinary daughter. This riveting play is an epic tale told through an unexpected and remarkable new perspective. 

Emmy nominee Matthew Penn ("Law and Order," "The Sopranos," "Damages") directs this deeply moving drama about the glories and challenges of raising an exceptional child.

Mother of the Maid

“Today, like a phoenix, rising from the bitter ashes the fires of Ferguson left behind, his mother, Lezley McSpadden stands strong.  She is a survivor, as she continues to fight for justice for her son.“

There are many parallels to be drawn between Lezley McSpadden, mother of Mike Brown, and Joan’s mother Isabelle, as they both continue to fight for the rights of their children. Check out Lezley’s We Love Our Sons & Daughters Foundation for more information on her advocacy.

Mother of the Maid

We all know about Saint Joan - but what about the saints who appeared to and helped her? Prime among those was Saint Catherine, who was martyred in the 4th Century. You can find out all about her via Wikipedia.
