Downton Abbey star Elizabeth McGovern will return to Broadway this fall in a new revival of J.B. Priestley's Time and the Conways, directed by Indecent Tony nominee Rebecca Taichman. The Roundabout Theatre Company production will begin previews September 14 at the American Airlines Theatre, with opening night set for October 10.

The first Broadway revival of the drama since its premiere in 1938, the play is described as follows: "In 1919 Britain, Mrs. Conway (McGovern) is full of optimism during her daughter's lavish 21st birthday celebration. The Great War is over, wealth is in the air, and the family's dreams bubble over like champagne. Jump 19 years into the future, though, and the Conways' lives have transformed unimaginably."

Additional casting and the design team will be announced soon.
