Smith to star in ‘Saints’

Show begins previews Aug. 24

Lois Smith will topline “100 Saints You Should Know,” the first offering of the 2007-08 season at Off Broadway’s Playwrights Horizons.

New play by Kate Fodor (“Hannah and Martin”) will be the first stage appearance for Smith since she won raves and a handful of awards last year for her turn in Signature Theater’s revival of “A Trip to Bountiful.”

Ethan McSweeny (“The Best Man”) directs “Saints,” about a priest who leaves his church to return to his mother (Smith) and is pursued by the woman who cleans the rectory.

No further casting has been nailed down. Show begins previews Aug. 24.
