About This Show

In 1919 Britain, Mrs. Conway (Downton Abbey‘s Elizabeth McGovern) 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.

With this production, Academy Award nominee McGovern returns to the Roundabout stage after her success as Cora Crawley in Downton Abbey, for which she won two Screen Actors Guild Awards and was nominated for a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy. McGovern made her Roundabout debut playing Ophelia in the company’s 1992 production of Hamlet. Roundabout also welcomes Tony-nominated director Rebecca Taichman, who made her Broadway debut this year with Indecent.
