About Mother of the Maid
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 Dance," "Defying 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.
