Article Pixel

Manhattan Theatre Club (Lynne Meadow, Artistic Producer; Barry Grove, Executive Producer) and MCC Theater (Robert LuPone, Bernard Telsey, William Cantler, Artistic Directors; Blake West, Executive Director) will co-produce the world premiere of The Snow Geese, a new play by Sharr White, directed by Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan, starring Tony and Emmy Award winner Mary-Louise Parker.

The strictly limited 11-week engagement of The Snow Geese will begin previews Tuesday, October 1 and open October 24, on Broadway at MTC's Samuel J. Friedman Theatre (261 West 47th Street).

THE SNOW GEESE marks the second collaboration between MTC, MCC, and playwright Sharr White. This winter, MTC produced the acclaimed Broadway premiere of White's play The Other Place, which had its world premiere at MCC Theater in 2011.

Parker returns to the Friedman stage where she previously starred in Craig Lucas' Reckless for which she received a 2004 Tony Award nomination. The Snow Geese also reunites Parker with Daniel Sullivan, who directed her in David Auburn's Proof, for which both Parker and Sullivan received Tony Awards for their work.

With World War I raging abroad, newly widowed Elizabeth Gaesling (Mary-Louise Parker) gathers her family for their annual shooting party to mark the opening of hunting season in rural, upstate New York. But Elizabeth is forced to confront a new reality as her carefree eldest son comes to terms with his impending deployment overseas and her younger son discovers that the father they all revered left them deeply in debt. Together, the family must let go of the life they've always known.

Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Rabbit Hole, Proof) directs this stirring new play about a family waking up from their own personal Gilded Age as the world around them changes forever.
Additional casting, creative team, and other listings information for The Snow Geese will be announced in the coming weeks.

Under the leadership of Artistic Director Lynne Meadow and Executive Producer Barry Grove, MTC has become one of the country's most prominent and prestigious theatre companies. Over the past three decades, MTC productions have earned a total of 18 Tony Awards and six Pulitzer Prizes, an accomplishment unparalleled by a New York theatrical institution.
