D. Tucker Smith's The Great Game is eyeing a Broadway run during the 2011-2012 Broadway season thanks to producers Randall L. Wreghitt and Jana Robbins. Tony nominee Sheryl Kaller (Next Fall) will direct the play. No casting has been announced.
The Great Game takes place in 1870 when George Haywad and Safia Das form a surprising romance in a dangerous world full of espionage. Their cultures collide as they each find themselves in the other's territory: he in the snow-swept mountains of Central Asia, she in the cobbled jungle of London. Their journeys could forever change the map of England's prized jewel and alter a family fixed in the fading traditions of changing times.
Kaller recently made her Broadway directorial debut with the Tony-nominated play Next Fall. Her other credits include Adrift in Macao, Dangerous Beauty, Rain, Weird Romance, The New Americans and The Talk.
The Great Game will mark author D. Tucker Smith's Broadway debut. His other plays include Quake and Catalog.
Wreghitt recently produced The Miracle Worker, Impressionism and Grey Gardens on Broadway, while Robbins has been reperesented on the Great White Way by Ragtime and Little Women.
