Armie Hammer will make his Broadway debut next summer in the play Straight White Men, Second Stage Theater announced on Monday.

The play, originally staged to great reviews in 2014 at the Public Theatre, is written by Obie winner Young Jean Lee, and its upcoming production marks the first time an Asian-American female playwright will have her work featured on Broadway. Straight White Men is a dark comedy set on Christmas Eve, and explores questions of identity and culture as Ed and his three adult sons gather for the holidays. Emmy-winner Tom Skerritt (Picket Fences) plays Ed, while Hammer plays his son, Drew.

The casting marks another breakthrough for Hammer in a year full of them. He’s currently vying for his first Oscar nomination for his turn in Call Me by Your Name, Luca Guadagnino’s acclaimed gay love story which is currently in the thick of the Best Picture conversation. Hammer, who is also known for his work in The Social Network and Nocturnal Animals, has already been nominated for an Independent Spirit Award for his performance in the movie as Oliver. He’ll next appear opposite Felicity Jones in On the Basis of Sex, playing the husband of Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

For Skerritt, Straight White Men will find him returning to Broadway after previously appearing in the 2013 production of A Time to Kill.

Straight White Men was revived earlier this year at the Steppenwolf in Chicago. The Broadway production will be directed by Tony winner Anna D. Shapiro (August: Osage County), and will begin previews at the Hayes Theater on June 29, 2018, before opening on July 23.
