Linda, a new play by Penelope Skinner (The Village Bike), will have its American premiere at Manhattan Theatre Club in 2017.

Directed by Lynne Meadow, the production will begin previews February 3 in advance of a February 23 opening at New York City Center – Stage I. Cast and creative team will be announced in the coming months.

The play is described as follows: "Linda Wilde has it all. She's an award-winning senior executive as well as a busy wife and mother. But when she pitches a revolutionary concept that could change the way the world looks at women of a certain age, she finds herself fighting for her own relevance as every part of her carefully considered life starts to show cracks."

Linda had its world premiere at the Royal Court Theatre in 2015.
