Residency One is Signature’s core one-year Playwright-in-Residence program, established 20 years ago, that produces a series of plays from the body of work of one accomplished writer.
This groundbreaking program offers a writer unprecedented freedom and support, including complete engagement in the artistic process, and gives the audience the rich, in-depth experience of an accomplished artist's body of work.

“Signature is honored to host Athol Fugard as our inaugural Residency One Playwright and our first international Playwright-in-Residence. Athol is a writer of astounding courage and humanity, which is evident in his breathtaking body of work that spans over fifty years. We look forward to presenting a wide breadth of that work, from his early to his latest plays, and we look forward to experiencing his rich and deep history at our new Center alongside our Legacy and Residency Five offerings.”
