Parker, Danner Eye Amanda Peet Play

Actress Amanda Peet will make her playwriting debut next season with “The Commons of Pensacola,” which New York nonprofit Manhattan Theater Club expects to produce as part of its 2013-14 season.

Sarah Jessica Parker and Blythe Danner are in talks to appear in the show, about a family confronted with a financial crisis.

It’ll be the first legit writing credit for Peet (“Identity Thief”), whose Gotham stage credits include the 2006 Broadway revival of “Barefoot in the Park” as well as Off Broadway stints in Neil LaBute plays “This Is How It Goes” and “The Break of Noon.”

Parker’s most recent Off Broadway run was in another MTC show, the 2001 staging of David Lindsay-Abaire’s “Wonder of the World,” and she was last on Broadway in the 1996 revival of “Once Upon a Mattress.” Danner, meanwhile, is currently appearing on Broadway in “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” which toplines Parker’s husband, Matthew Broderick.

No dates have yet been confirmed for “Commons of Pensacola,” with MTC still to announce its upcoming schedule for the 2013-14 season.

Current lineup at MTC includes the Off Broadway production of “The Madrid,” starring Edie Falco, as well as Richard Greenberg’s “The Assembled Parties,” beginning perfs on Broadway later this month. Plays “The Explorers Club” and “Choir Boy” will round out the season later this year.
