Elizabeth McGovern returning to Broadway in Time and the Conways adaptation

Elizabeth Mcgovern is heading back to Broadway after 25 years to star in a revival of J.b. Priestly’s Time And The Conways.
The stageshow at the Roundabout Theatre Company is scheduled to premiere in September (17) and run until November (17) at the American Airlines Theatre. It will be directed by Rebecca Taichman.
The production centres on a wealthy Yorkshire, England family’s life experiences over a difficult 18 year period following World War One. McGovern will play the matriarch of the family. The drama first premiered in 1938 and the new stageshow will serve as the first Broadway revival.
The original play starred Dame Sybil Thorndike and was directed by Irene Hentschel. It was subsequently adapted into a BBC TV production in 1985 and starred Claire Bloom. Harriet Walter also starred in a BBC radio production adaptation in 2014.
Former Downton Abbey star McGovern last appeared on Broadway in 1992’s Hamlet.
