Joshua Harmon (“Significant Other”) and Lindsey Ferrentino (“Ugly Lies the Bone”), alumni of the Roundabout Underground, will return to Roundabout Theater Company with two new plays.

Those plays, which were commissioned by Roundabout, will have their premieres as part of the theater company’s Off Broadway season at the Harold and Miriam Steinberg Center for Theater.

Mr. Harmon’s “Skintight” — which deals in themes of beauty, youth and sex — is scheduled to begin performances in May 2018. At the helm will be Daniel Aukin, who directed Mr. Harmon’s witty, dark comedy “Bad Jews” at Roundabout in 2013. “Significant Other,” which ran at Roundabout in 2015, will transfer to Broadway next month.

Performances of “Amy and the Orphans,” by Ms. Ferrentino, are set to begin in February 2018. The play, about siblings who reunite after their father’s death, will be directed by Scott Ellis, a Tony Award nominee for Roundabout’s revival of “She Loves Me” last year.

The season also includes the New York premiere of “The Last Match,” by Anna Ziegler (“Boy”), and “Too Heavy for Your Pocket,” by the Roundabout newcomer Jiréh Breon Holder.
