Mary-Louise Parker is coming back to Broadway in the world premiere of Sharr White's "The Snow Geese."

The Manhattan Theatre Club and MCC Theater said Wednesday that previews will begin Oct. 1 and the play will open Oct. 24 at the Samuel J. Friedman Theatre. Daniel Sullivan will direct.

Set as World War I rages, the play is "about a family waking up from their own personal Gilded Age as the world around them changes forever," according to producers.

It reunites Parker and Sullivan, who directed her in David Auburn's "Proof," which earned both Tonys. Parker also was in Craig Lucas' "Reckless" and in a 2009 revival of "Hedda Gabler."

White's plays include "The Other Place," stars Laurie Metcalf as a scientist whose mind is failing her.
