Roundabout Theatre Company has announced plans to present the world premiere of a new musical, Scotland, PA, featuring a book by Michael Mitnick, and music and lyrics by Adam Gwon.

Directed by Lonny Price and choreographed by Josh Rhodes, Scotland, PA is Gwon's Roundabout commission following the debut of his musical Ordinary Days at Roundabout Underground. The limited engagement at the Laura Pels Theatre will begin September 14 ahead of an October 15 opening.

In Scotland, PA, revenge is a dish best served with fries. This deliciously dark new musical comedy, based on the cult film (and Shakespeare's Macbeth), springs to life in a sleepy Pennsylvania town (population 1,203 — and dropping), where a burger-joint manager and his wife cook up a plan to supersize their lives. As their ambitions grow and the bodies fall, the couple finds out just how far they'll go for a taste of the oh-so-tempting American dream.

Scotland, PA has been in development at Roundabout since 2014. Vadim Feichtner will music-direct the world-premiere production.

Cast and creative team will be announced at a later date.
