About The Event
The Ensemble Company, the repertory company in residence at Penguin Point Productions located in the Oviedo Mall, will continue its 2020 season with the Central Florida premiere of Jane Anderson’s Mother of the Maid.
Isabelle Arc is a sensible, hard-working, God-fearing woman. Her headstrong daughter, on the other hand, communes with Saint Catherine, dons men's clothing, and prepares to lead the French army into battle.
Motherhood in the fifteenth century is not easy.
In her riveting new play--fresh from an acclaimed run at The Public Theater in New York City starring acclaimed actress Glenn Close—Anderson (Emmy Award-winning writer of The Positively True Adventures of the Alleged Texas Cheerleader Murdering Mom and Olive Kittredge, The Wife) reimagines Joan of Arc's epic tale through the eyes of her mother. Isabelle follows the baffling journey of her odd and extraordinary daughter with a mother's loving persistence--facing her own fears and upended faith along the way.
The Ensemble Company’s founder and producing artistic director, Matthew MacDermid, will direct the production, which will star Eileen Antonescu as Isabelle Arc, Mallory Robson as Joan Arc, Thomas Muniz as Jacques Arc, Gabriel Garcia as Pierre Arc, Laura Cooper as Lady of the Court, and Daryl Wells as Father Gilbert.
Mother of the Maid is part of The Ensemble Company’s second season in residence at Penguin Point Productions. The season continues with the Orlando premieres of Harvey Fierstein’s revised Torch Song and Jeremy Kareken, David Murrell, and Gordon Farrell’s The Lifespan of a Fact, as well as favorite classics Les Liaisons Dangereuses and A Tuna Christmas.

When you arrive at the mall, watch for school buses in the parking lot. Park near the school buses and enter the mall under the blue canopy-covered walkway. Penguin Point will be the second store to your right when you enter this way. Be aware that some of the other mall exits are locked after 9pm, so if you’re coming to an evening show at Penguin Point it’s wise to park by this entrance.
