Opening night is set for Oct. 4.
The play, according to press notes, asks, "Are we in control of our lives or is there something else at work? With a grippingly innovative dramatic structure, Grace follows a wide-eyed young couple (Rudd & Arrington) as they start a new life in sunny, promise-filled Florida, with big plans to open a chain of Gospel motels. An agitated neighbor (Shannon) and a caustic exterminator (Asner) complete the eclectic foursome as destinies collide in this intensely entertaining and suspenseful journey to the edge of your seat."
Grace premiered to critical acclaim at The Woolly Mammoth Theatre in Washington, DC, in 2004, and was subsequently seen in a celebrated production at Northlight Theater in Chicago, and at the Pasadena Playhouse in Los Angeles (where it received three LA Drama Critics Circle Awards including Best Play).
This production marks the Broadway debuts of playwright Wright, director Bullard and actor Shannon, who have a 15-plus year history of collaboration in the theatre on works including, most recently, Mistakes Were Made.
Theatre, design team and ticket information will be announced at a later date. Visit www.graceonbroadway.com.
