New York: David Schwimmer is coming back to the New York stage - by way of Detroit.

The former Friends star will make his Playwrights Horizons debut this summer in Lisa D'Amour's play about the tensions lurking under the surface of American life.

He will star opposite Tony Award nominee Amy Ryan. Detroit is set in a suburb of that city and centers on a couple who invite their new neighbours over for a barbecue only to slowly find their friendship veering out of control.

Previews begin on August 24. The play represents Schwimmer's first return to the New York stage since his Broadway debut in The Caine Mutiny Court Martial in 2006. He also directed Fault Lines at the Cherry Lane Theatre in 2008.
