Mary-Louise Parker is set to star in the world premiere of The Snow Geese, a new Broadway play from writer Sharr White.

Set in the time of World War I, The Snow Geese follows a widow and her two sons, who set off on their annual hunting trip only to realize that their pre-war life is over, as their days are now clouded with harsh realities of battle and debt.

Premiering for a limited 11-week engagement, The Snow Geese is directed by Tony Award-winner Daniel Sullivan, who previously directed the Tony Award-nominated Parker in Proof. Previews begin Oct. 1, and the play will then open at MTC’s Samuel J. Friedman Theatre on Oct. 24. The show is a co-production between the Manhattan Theatre Club and the MCC Theater.
