Ethan Coen is going off-Broadway again.

The Academy Award-winning filmmaker is returning to the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City with “Offices,” a new collection of one-act plays.

Coen scored a success last season at the Atlantic with “Almost an Evening,” another trio of one acts. “It was a good experience, so I’m going to try and repeat it,” the filmmaker said in an interview.

“Offices” will open May 7 with preview performances beginning April 15. The 11-person cast will include F. Murray Abraham, John Bedford Lloyd and Mary McCann. The director is Neil Pepe, artistic head of the Atlantic.


With brother Joel, Coen has made more than a dozen movies, including “No Country for Old Men” (2007’s best-picture Oscar winner) and “Fargo.”
