Sigourney Weaver will again team up with scribe A.R. Gurney for “Crazy Mary,” slated to preem at Playwrights Horizons in May 2007.
Thesp performed in Gurney’s comedy “Mrs. Farnsworth” in a successful production at the Flea in 2004. That show was helmed, as “Crazy Mary” will be, by Flea a.d. (and Weaver’s husband) Jim Simpson.
Weaver plays a society matron who, with a sizable inheritance at stake, takes her college-age son to visit their long-lost cousin in an asylum.
Playwrights also has tapped Leigh Silverman (“Well”) to direct Tanya Barfield’s “Blue Door,” about a black mathematician tormented by his ancestors’ ghosts, and Joe Calarco will helm “Floyd and Clea Under the Western Sky,” David Cale and Jonathan Kreisberg’s tuner about a has-been country music star and the 20-year-old woman who joins up with him.
