The synopsis: “Left on Tenth is a true story about love, hope, and the wonder of second chances. When she least expects it, Delia Ephron, best-selling novelist and screenwriter of You’ve Got Mail, makes a surprising connection with a man from her past and falls into her own romantic comedy. As their immediate spark blossoms into a love story that seems to defy all odds, Delia’s life takes an unexpected turn. Left on Tenth tells the messy, beautiful truth about getting older while feeling young, as it celebrates two people with the courage to rewrite their futures and open their hearts again.”

“I am grateful and thrilled to be working with these champions of theater – Susan Stroman and Daryl Roth,” said Ephron in a statement. “Left on Tenth is about a perilous and wondrous time of my life. We invite you to join our team of warriors and become believers yourselves.”

Said Roth: “When Delia first spoke to me about her manuscript of Left on Tenth, I felt that her story would make a magnificent play. It is heartfelt, deeply personal yet universal, and full of hope. But it is also a classic romantic comedy for a certain generation, showing us that we can all be blessed with a second chance at life and love.”

In addition to her memoir, Delia Ephron co-wrote the screenplay for the hit rom-com You’ve Got Mail with her sister Nora Ephron, who directed. The Ephrons also co-wrote the play Love, Loss and What I Wore, among other projects.

Best known for her TV roles on The Morning Show, ER and The Good Wife, Margulies made her Broadway debut in 2006 starring in the play Festen directed by Rufus Norris. She also completed a successful Off Broadway run in Jon Robin Baitz’s Ten Unknowns at Lincoln Center, for which she won the Lucille Lortel Award, and appeared in Baitz’s The Substance of Fire at the Oslo Theater.

Some of Gallagher’s recent credits include Truth Be Told, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist and Grace and Frankie. His Broadway credits include Guys and Dolls, Long Day’s Journey Into Night, The Real Thing, The Country Girl, and On The Twentieth Century.

Stroman is a five-time Tony Award-winning director and choreographer, whose work includes New York, New York, POTUS, Young Frankenstein and many other Broadway credits.
