Geffen Playhouse Extends Run of Red Hot Patriot, Starring Kathleen Turner
Kathleen Turner stars in the title role, with the cast also featuring Matthew Van Oss as the "helper." David Esbjornson directs the play, written by twin sisters Allison Engel & Margaret Engel.

Turner originated her role during the show's 2010 world premiere from Philadelphia Theatre Company. Among her Broadway credits are High, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?, The Graduate, and Cat on a Hot Tin Roof . Her many film credits include War of the Roses, Romancing the Stone, Prizzi's Honor, Body Heat, and Peggy Sue Got Married.
