NEW YORK (AP) — A revival of Terence Rattigan's play "The Winslow Boy" starring Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio and Roger Rees is heading to Broadway next season.

The Roundabout Theatre Company said Wednesday the play joins its previously announced shows Donald Margulies' "Dinner With Friends" and Tom Stoppard's "The Real Thing."

All three will be either at the Roundabout's American Airlines Theatre or Laura Pels Theatre during the 2013-14 season.

"The Winslow Boy" is about father who sets out to prove his son's innocence when he's accused of theft. Lindsay Posner, who staged the play at London's Old Vic, returns to direct on Broadway. It replaces the previously scheduled "The Philadelphia Story."

Rees, who co-directed "Peter and the Starcatcher," was last on Broadway in "The Addams Family." Mastrantonio was last on Broadway in 2002's "Man of La Mancha."
