DOWNTON ABBEY Star Elizabeth McGovern Will Lead TIME AND THE CONWAYS on Broadway; Rebecca Taichman Set to Direct

Roundabout Theatre Company (Todd Haimes, Artistic Director/CEO) just announced the new Broadway production of Time and the Conways by J. B. Priestley, directed by Tony nominee Rebecca Taichman (Indecent), and starring Oscar, Emmy & Golden Globe nominee Elizabeth McGovern (Downton Abbey). Time and the Conways returns to Broadway for the first time since its premiere in 1938.

Time and the Conways will begin preview performances on September 14, 2017 and opens officially on October 10, 2017. This is a limited engagement through November 26, 2017 at the American Airlines Theatre on Broadway (227 West 42nd Street).

Roundabout is pleased to welcome back Oscar nominee Elizabeth McGovern following her success as "Cora Crawley" in "Downton Abbey," for which she won two Screen Actors Guild, and was nominated for a Golden Globe and a Primetime Emmy Award. McGovern made her Roundabout debut playing Ophelia in the 1992 production of Hamlet. Roundabout also welcomes Tony-nominated director Rebecca Taichman, who made her Broadway debut this season with Indecent.

In 1919 Britain, Mrs. Conway (Downton Abbey's Elizabeth McGovern) is full of optimism during her daughter's lavish twenty-first birthday celebration. The Great War is over, wealth is in the air, and the family's dreams bubble over like champagne. Jump nineteen years into the future, though, and the Conways' lives have transformed unimaginably. This time-traveling play by J.B. Priestley (An Inspector Calls) takes place at the crossroads of today and tomorrow-challenging our notions of choice, chance and destiny. Tony nominee Rebecca Taichman (Indecent) directs.

Additional casting and the design team will be announced soon.
