Elizabeth McGovern to star in Broadway's 'Time and the Conways' revival

UPI News Service, 05/10/2017 

Elizabeth McGovern is to star in "Time and the Conways" when the play returns to Broadway this fall for the first time since its premiere in 1938.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said additional casting and the design team will be announced soon.

The revival of J.B. Priestley's drama will be directed by Rebecca Taichman, a current, Tony nominee who made her Broadway debut this season with Indecent.

"Time and the Conways" is scheduled to begin preview performances on September 14, with an official opening night planned for October 10.

The production is a limited engagement, set to play through November 26 at the American Airlines Theatre. 

Best known for her work on TV's "Downton Abbey," McGovern made her Roundabout debut playing Ophelia in the 1992 production of "Hamlet."

"In 1919 Britain, Mrs. Conway is full of optimism during her daughter's lavish, 21st birthday celebration," press notes explain.

"The Great War is over, wealth is in the air, and the family's dreams bubble over like champagne. Jump 19 years into the future, though, and the Conways' lives have transformed unimaginably. This time-traveling play by J.B. Priestley takes place at the crossroads of today and tomorrow -- challenging our notions of choice, chance and destiny."
