Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman directs the revival of J.B. Priestley's play for Roundabout Theatre Company.
The Roundabout Theatre Company revival of J.B. Priestley's Time and the Conways is currently in performances at the American Airlines Theatre under the direction of Tony Award winner Rebecca Taichman (Indecent). Opening night is set for October 10 and performances continue through November 26.
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."
The creative team includes Neil Patel (set design), Paloma Young (costume design), Christopher Akerlind (lighting design), and Matt Hubbs (sound design).
