Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Margulies' The Country House, premieres at the Geffen Playhouse June 3. Tony Award winner Blythe Danner leads the cast of the Chekhov-inspired play that will arrive on Broadway later this season. 

Tony winner Daniel Sullivan (Time Stands Still, Good People) directs the play that will officially open June 11 for a run through July 13 in Los Angeles. It is a co-production with Manhattan Theatre Club, which will present the Broadway run of the play beginning in September.

Danner (Butterflies, Betrayal, The Commons of Pensacola) is joined by Scott Foley ("Scandal," "The Unit," "Felicity"), David Rasche (Speed-The-Plow), Sarah Steele (Slowgirl, The Netflix Plays), Eric Lange ("The Bridge," "Weeds") and Emily Swallow ("The Mentalist," Romantic Poetry).

Danner is the only cast member currently confirmed for the Broadway engagement.

According to the Geffen, "This witty and compelling new play provides a piercing look at a family of performers coming to terms with the roles they play in each other's lives."



Margulies' plays also include Dinner With Friends, Coney Island Christmas, Times Stands Still and Sight Unseen.
