Home, the Samm-Art Williams play directed by Kenny Leon and opening on Broadway this summer, has announced its cast.

The production will mark the first Broadway staging of Home since 1980. The play was originally staged by the Negro Ensemble Company in 1979.

The synopsis: Cephus Miles has the whole world in his callused hands—until his sweetheart Pattie Mae goes off to college and marries another man. Roundabout describes Home as “a muscular and melodic coming-of-age story that gives voice to the unbreakable spirit of all Americans who have been searching for a place to belong.”

Home will begin preview performances on Friday, May 17, with an official opening on Wednesday, June 5, at the Todd Haimes Theatre. The limited engagement runs through Sunday, July 21.

The creative team for Home includes Arnulfo Maldonado (Set), Dede Ayite (Costumes), Allen Lee Hughes (Lighting), and Justin Ellington (Sound).
