Atlantic Theater Company has announced a one-week extension of the US premiere of Florian Zeller's The Mother, translated by Christopher Hampton, and directed by Trip Cullman. The production, which begins performances on Wednesday, February 20, and opens on Monday, March 11, will now run through Saturday, April 13 at the Linda Gross Theater.

The Mother is described as follows: "Can one love one's son too much? Anne has given everything to the family she's built. Now the years have gone by, and her children have grown up and have lives and loves of their own, leaving her alone in a world that is crumbling around her. The Mother is a captivating and disquieting new play about a woman grasping for stability by acclaimed French writer Florian Zeller, translated by Christopher Hampton that will leave you questioning the very nature of reality."

The ensemble will feature Academy Award nominee Isabelle Huppert (Elle) as Anne, Golden Globe Award nominee Chris Noth (Sex and the City) as Pierre, Justice Smith (The Get Down) as Nicolas, and Odessa Young (Days of Rage) as Élodie.

The creative team for The Mother includes scenic design by Mark Wendland, costume design by Anita Yavich, lighting design by Ben Stanton, sound design and original composition by Fitz Patton, and projections by Lucy MacKinnon.
