NEW YORK (AP) - Karen Allen, who romanced Indiana Jones, has been lured back to the New York stage.

Allen, perhaps best known for her role in the first Indian Jones film and the recent sequel "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," will star in the American premiere of Jon Fosse's "A Summer Day."

The Rattlestick Playwrights Theater production begins performances Oct. 10 at the Cherry Lane Theatre. The six-person play is set in two time periods in the same idyllic house.

Allen has lately made her base in western Massachusetts, where she teaches theatre at Bard College and sells handmade knitware.

Last year she directed Michael Weller's "Moonchildren" at the Berkshire Theatre Festival. Her film roles include "Animal House," ''Starman," ''In the Bedroom" and "The Perfect Storm."
