The world premiere of A.R. Gurney's comedy Love and Money, directed by Mark Lamos, will be a co-production between Signature Theatre and Westport Country Playhouse, and will feature in both company's 2015-2016 seasons.

The production will be staged at the Westport Country Playhouse from 21 July to 8 August 2015, before it moves to off-Broadway's Signature Theatre later on in August. Gurney is currently represented at the Signature Center's Alice Griffin Jewel Box Theatre with The Wayside Motor Inn, which has been extended twice and is now booking through to 5 October 2014.

In Love and Money "wealthy widow Cornelia Cunningham has led a life of grace and privilege, and she's making up for it as fast as she can. Determined to donate almost everything she owns before the end, Cornelia's plans are questioned when an ambitious and ingratiating young man, who may be the grandson she never knew she had, arrives to claim his inheritance. The trials of class, family, legacy, and race are explored in this world-premiere comedy by A.R. Gurney."

Exact dates (for the off-Broadway run), casting and creative team will be announced at a later date.
