Mint unveils season schedule

Slate includes 'Glass Cage,' 'Mrs. Holroyd'

A U.S. preem of a 1957 J.B. Priestley play and the first Gotham stint for a 1914 D.H. Lawrence play make up the 2008-09 season at Off Broadway’s Mint Theater.

Season kicks off in September with “The Glass Cage,” a play by late Brit scribe Priestley (“An Inspector Calls”) about three siblings upsetting the lives of two pious brothers in 1906 Toronto. Little-seen show played the Royal Theater in Northampton, England, in 2007.

In February the Mint, which is dedicated to producing overlooked plays from the past, presents Lawrence’s “The Widowing of Mrs. Holroyd,” about a woman unhappily married to a coal miner. Mint had a hit in 2003 with its staging of Lawrence’s “The Daughter-in-Law.”

Beginning perfs Sept. 4, “Cage” stars Gerry Bamman, Jeanine Serralles and Jack Wetherall, among others. Lou Jacob directs. “Widowing” begins its spring run Feb. 4.
