Elizabeth McGovern and Cast of Time and the Conways Meet the Press
Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman directs the production for Roundabout Theatre Company.
The cast of Roundabout Theatre Company's revival of J.B. Priestley's Time and the Conways took a break from rehearsals today to meet the press in advance of performances beginning September 14. Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman (Indecent) directs the production for its limited run through November 26 at the American Airlines Theatre. Opening night is set for October 10.
Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey) leads the cast as Mrs. Conway. She is joined by Steven Boyer (Ernest), Anna Camp (Hazel), Gabriel Ebert (Alan), Charlotte Parry (Kay), Matthew James Thomas (Robin), Anna Baryshnikov (Carol), Brooke Bloom (Madge), Alfredo Narciso (Gerald), and Cara Ricketts (Joan).
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."
