Roundabout Theatre Company has announced plans to present the New York premiere of Alex Lubischer's Bobbie Clearly, directed by Will Davis, March 8-May 20, 2018. Opening night is set for April 3 at the Black Box Theatre at The Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theatre. The production will be the second play in Roundabout Underground's expanded two-play season, following Too Heavy For Your Pocket by Jiréh Breon Holder this fall.

Bobbie Clearly's plot is described as follows: "Bobbie killed Casey in the middle of a cornfield in Milton, Nebraska. Two years later, Milton's residents are ready to tell you their side(s) of the story." The cast and design team will be announced soon.

Now in its 11th season, Roundabout Underground showcases new plays that will either give a debut production to an emerging writer or director, or allow an experienced director to go back to his or her creative roots. Robyn Goodman (artistic consultant to the Roundabout) serves as artistic producer, with associate producers Jill Rafson and Josh Fiedler.
