The Conways are having a party to celebrate Kay's twenty first birthday. Kay hopes to be a novelist. Hazel, the beauty, anticipates a romantic marriage. Madge wants to reform the world and marry the dashing young family lawyer. Carol, the baby of the family, spreads good cheer while Robin, back from war, is certain to have a good career. Alan is content to be an armchair philosopher. The nitwit mother has high hopes for them all. At the party Kay, with frightening clarity, sees her family twenty years in the future. They are petty, mean, and unfulfilled. Only Kay and her calm brother realize time is relative and there is something fine and worthwhile beyond.


Time and the Conways will begin preview performances on Broadway with The Roundabout Theatre Company Fall 2017, in a production directed by Rebecca Taichman, and starring Elizabeth McGovern. Time and the Conways returns to Broadway for the first time since its premiere in 1938.


Time and the Conways premiered at the Duchess Theatre in London in August 1937.
