Roundabout has unveiled the complete cast for its upcoming world premiere of the new musical Scotland, PA, with music and lyrics by Adam Gwon (Ordinary Days) and a book by Michael Mitnick (Sex Lives of Our Parents). Adapted from Billy Morrissette's indie film of the same name (and William Shakespeare's Macbeth), the dark musical comedy is the story of an ambitious—and bloody-thirsty—couple (the McBeths) running a burger joint in a sleepy Pennsylvania town.

Leading the cast as the husband-and-wife duo will be Wicked's Ryan McCartan and Head Over Heels' Taylor Iman Jones. They are joined by Jeb Brown as Duncan, Jay Armstrong Johnson as Banko, Lacretta as Mrs. Lenox, Megan Lawrence as McDuff, Will Meyers as Malcolm, Wonu Ogunfowora as Stacey, David Rossmer as Doug, Alysha Umphress as Jessie, and Kaleb Wells as Hector.

Scotland, PA, which begins previews in the Laura Pels Theater September 13, is directed by Lonny Price with choreography by Josh Rhodes. Opening night is set for October 23 for a limited engagement scheduled through December 8.

In the show, a restaurant manager and his wife cook up a plan to super-size their lives. As the bodies start to fall, the couple finds out just how far they’ll go for a taste of the American dream.

Scotland, PA is Gwon’s Roundabout commission following the debut of Ordinary Days in the Underground theatre. Ordinary Days music director Vadim Feichtner will return to Roundabout for the production, alongside a creative team that also includes Anna Louizos (scenic design), Tracy Christensen (costume design), Jeanette Yew (lighting design), Jon Weston (sound design), and Frank Galgano and Matt Castle (orchestrations).
