The first-ever New York revival of Allan Monkhouse's 1911 comedy Mary Broome, about a housemaid who becomes part of the family, begins performances Off-Broadway Aug. 18 at the Mint Theater Company.
Mint artistic director Jonathan Bank directs the production that officially opens Sept. 10 for a run through Oct. 14. The play premiered in London in 1911 and received its New York debut in 1919 at the Neighborhood Playhouse.
Mary Broome, according to the Mint, "tells the story of a household turned upside down by an upstairs/downstairs liaison. Mary, the housemaid, is pregnant by Leonard, the wayward son — and everyone is eager to do the right thing — if only they knew what that was."
The production has set design by Roger Hanna, costume design by Martha Hally, lighting design by Nicole Pearce, sound design by Jane Shaw and prop design by Joshua Yocum.
