NEW YORK — Academy Award winner Frances McDormand returns to Broadway this coming season in "Good People," a new play by David Lindsay-Abaire.

Tony Award winner Daniel Sullivan will direct the play about the hopes and struggles of making it in America. Sullivan and Lindsay-Abaire's "Rabbit Hole" earned a Tony Award and garnered Lindsay-Abaire the Pulitzer Prize for Drama in 2007.

The Manhattan Theater Club production begins previews next February, with opening night set for March 3, 2011.

McDormand won an Oscar for her performance in "Fargo" and received a Tony nomination for her portrayal of Stella in the 1988 Broadway revival of "A Streetcar Named Desire."
