By Carey Purcell
The Old Globe Theatre has announced the cast and creative team for its upcoming production of the period classic Time and the Conways.
Performances of J.B. Priestley’s play begin March 29, prior to an official opening April 3. Time and the Conways continues through May 4.
Directed by Rebecca Taichman, the cast will feature Leanne Agmon ("Hybrids," Spring Awakening) as Carol Conway, Jonathan Fielding (Pygmalion, The Seagull) as Alan Conway, Morgan Hallett (Translations, Long Day’s Journey Into Night) as Madge Conway, Rose Hemingway (How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying, Parade) as Hazel Conway, Sarah Manton (The Coast of Utopia, South Pacific) as Joan Helford, Leo Marks (Lincolnesque, The Language Archive) as Gerald Thornton, Kim Martin-Cotten (The Merchant of Venice, Not What Happened) as Mrs. Conway, Max Gordon Moore (Relatively Speaking, Man and Superman) as Ernest Beevers, Amanda Quaid (Equus, Cock) as Kay Conway and Lee Aaron Rosen (The Big Knife, The Normal Heart) as Robin Conway.
Here's how the production is billed: "In his poignant drama of the Conways and their eventful lives in Britain between the wars — a period that Globe audiences who love 'Downton Abbey' will recognize — Priestley examines the driving forces of human existence: love, ambition, and most of all, time. He conjures a striking portrait of a family in which past, present, and future are inextricably intertwined."
"I am looking forward to welcoming San Diego audiences to the Globe to rediscover this extraordinary work by a master of the English stage," artistic director Barry Edelstein said in a statement. "Rarely revived in the United States, Priestley’s plays are fascinating, moving, and highly theatrical. The visual artistry of the gifted director Rebecca Taichman and the richness of the Globe’s production values will make Time and the Conways a memorable evening."
The creative team includes Neil Patel (scenic design), David Israel Reynoso (costume design), Scott Zielinski (lighting design), Matt Hubbs (sound design), Jan Gist (vocal and dialect coach), Caparelliotis Casting (casting), and Diana Moser (stage manager).
