Be on the lookout for a nearly familiar face on Duke of Gloucester Street. Starting in May, Meryl Streep’s daughter, Mamie Gummer, will serve as the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s first artist-in-residence.
According to the Daily Press, Gummer will portray Lady Dunmore, the wife of Virginia’s last royal governor, in a new program titled “Lady Dunmore Prepares for the Ball.” The scene depicts May 26, 1774, when a ball was held at the Capitol in honor of Lady Dunmore’s arrival in Williamsburg.
Gummer is 26 years old and has performed on Broadway, in addition to having played Sally Smith Adams in the “John Adams” miniseries, which was filmed in part in Colonial Williamsburg.
