NEW YORK – Three one-act plays by Woody Allen, Ethan Coen and Elaine May are being bundled together and heading to Broadway this fall.

Allen is no stranger to the format, having collaborated with May and David Mamet for "Death Defying Acts," three effervescent one-act comedies that debuted in 1995.

The new mini plays, titled "Relatively Speaking," will be directed by John Turturro, who has appeared in several films by Coen and his brother Joel, including "The Big Lebowski."

Producers said Tuesday that previews will begin in September with an opening the following month. Details on casting and location will be made later.

Allen returns to the New York stage as a playwright following the off-Broadway productions of his "Writer's Block" in 2003 and "A Second Hand Memory" in 2004.
