Roundabout presents the W. Somerset Maugham comedy at its American Airlines Theater. It opens June 16, with previews beginning May 27. The company’s long-extended “12 Angry Men” continues at the West 42nd Street theater through May 8.

Mark Brokaw directs the Maugham play, set in 1920s London. When a wife discovers her husband is having an affair with her best friend, she turns the situation to her advantage.
