Cherry Jones Books Off Broadway Gig for 2014

Actress will star in the new play by Sarah Treem, 'When We Were Young and Unafraid'

Cherry Jones, who has lined up for a fall Broadway stint in “The Glass Menagerie,” has also locked in a 2014 run in the Manhattan Theater Club’s world premiere of playwright Sarah Treem’s latest, “When We Were Young and Unafraid.”

Jones will be part of a 2013-14 season at Manhattan Theater Club that already includes Mary-Louise Parker in the preem of Sharr White’s “The Snow Geese” and Blythe Danner and Sarah Jessica Parker in “The Commons of Pensacola,” a new play by Amanda Peet.

Pam MacKinnon, a Tony nominee for her staging of “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?,” helms “When We Were Young and Unafraid,” set to have its world preem on one of MTC’s two Off Broadway stages. Jones’ last job at MTC was in “Doubt,” the play that won the actress her a second Tony (after 1995 outing “The Heiress”) when it transferred to Broadway in 2005.

In “When We Were Young and Unafraid,” actress will play the owner of a 1970s bed and breakfast that is also a women’s shelter where one of the runaways she’s taken in begins to have a surprising influence on her teen daughter. Scribe Treem, a writer on Netflix skein “House of Cards,” has penned plays including “A Feminine Ending” and “The How and the Why.”

“When We Were Young and Unafraid” begins previews May 22 ahead of a June 17 opening at MTC’s Stage I at New York City Center.
