Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of J.B. Priestley's 1937 drama Time and the Conways opens tonight at American Airlines Theatre. To mark the occasion, the show has released its first footage.

Oscar nominee Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) stars as Mrs. Conway, alongside Steven Boyer, Anna Camp, Gabriel Ebert, Charlotte Parry, Matthew James Thomas, Anna Baryshnikov, Brooke Bloom, Alfredo Narciso, and Cara Ricketts.

The play is described as follows: "In 1919 Britain, Mrs. Conway 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. Leap 19 years into the future, though, and the Conways' lives have transformed unimaginably. This time-jumping play by J.B. Priestley (An Inspector Calls) takes place at the crossroads of today and tomorrow — challenging viewers' notions of choice, chance, and destiny."

Directed by Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman (Indecent), the creative team includes Neil Patel (set design), Paloma Young (costume design), Christopher Akerlind (lighting design), and Matt Hubbs (sound design).
