James Macdonald will direct the production, which will begin performances Feb. 6, 2007, at the Mitzi E. Newhouse Theater. Opening night is Monday, February 26. Originally produced in London this spring at the Royal Court Theatre, the play "tells the story of Kelly, a young therapist whose husband dies while on military duty in Iraq. A year later, his identical twin brother arrives unexpectedly at Kelly's door, seeking solace—and answers to the mystery of his brother’s death," according to production notes.

The cast of two and the designers will be announced at a later date.

Shinn's plays include Four, Where Do We Live, What Didn’t Happen, The Coming World and Other People. He has been produced at Playwrights Horizons, Manhattan Theatre Club, the Vineyard Theatre, among others.

MacDonald previously directed Caryl Churchill’s A Number at New York Theater Workshop.
