Larry David is set to make his Broadway debut in Fish in the Dark.

The Curb Your Enthusiasm writer and star and Seinfeld co-creator has written the comedy ensemble play, which is scheduled to open in March 2015.

David told The New York Times that there will be 15 characters in the play, adding of his part: "[I play] somebody very similar to Larry David - it might even be Larry David with a different name."

David's script for Fish in the Dark focuses on the impact of a death on a family.

The comedian added that his last experience of working in a play was many years ago, saying: "I haven't been in a play since the eighth grade, when I did Charley's Aunt. I seem to remember wearing a dress. That's it. And I'm not even really an actor. But I'm still sleeping at night, and I hope that continues."

Anna D Shapiro (August: Osage County) will direct Fish in the Dark.
