The play is about a Mother who has dementia, is addicted to pills and is losing her mind. It’s a very sad play but Isabelle Huppert is giving the performance of a lifetime.
Atlantic Theater Company (Neil Pepe, Artistic Director; Jeffory Lawson, Managing Director) is proud to present the US premiere of The Mother, a play by Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Trip Cullman.
The Mother opened Monday, March 11th for a limited engagement through Saturday, April 13th, 2019 Off-Broadway at the Linda Gross Theater (336 west 20th Street.)
