David Mamet will be doing double duty with his new Broadway-bound play "Race."

Not only has Mamet written it, he will direct its world premiere, too.

Producer Jeffrey Richards said earlier this month that "Race" will go into rehearsal Oct. 26, with the first preview set for Nov. 21 and an opening scheduled for Dec. 10. Richards declined to talk about "Race" but said, "The title is self-explanatory."

No casting, design team or theater have been announced.

Mamet has directed other world premieres of his plays including "Oleanna," "The Cryptogram," "Boston Marriage" and "Faustus."
