Time and the Conways with Elizabeth McGovern at Roundabout
American Airlines Theatrehttp://www.roundabouttheatre.org/
227 West 42nd Street
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, with a creative team that includes Neil Patel (Set Design), Paloma Young (Costume Design), Christopher Akerlind (Lighting Design) and Matt Hubbs (Sound Design).
