Skip site navigation and jump to page content

Overview



"To modern Americans grappling with questions of privilege and responsibility, in relation to disadvantaged groups in America or abroad, the play remains a thrown gauntlet. "

-Time Out New York

"A superb, highly compelling revival!"

-AM NY

"A first-rate revival…Wilson's Incident at Vichy could scarcely feel more alive."

-Talkin’ Broadway

"Deals with powerful themes of guilt and responsibility, tautly dramatized and well-defined."

-The Hollywood Reporter

Celebrating the Centennial of Arthur Miller’s birth, Incident at Vichy returns the work of the Pulitzer Prize winning playwright to Signature for the first time since his 1997-98 Residency. In Vichy, France at the height of World War II, nine men and a boy are rounded up under suspicious circumstances. As ominous reports of far-off camps and cattle cars packed with prisoners begin to circulate, the men battle over politics, philosophy and how to escape. Longtime Signature director Michael Wilson (Horton Foote’s The Old Friends and The Orphans’ Home Cycle) helms this haunting examination of the cold, bureaucratic efficiency of evil—and the shared humanity that might overcome it.

Incident at Vichy contains a gunshot, haze and the use of herbal smoke.
