In honor of Signature’s 25th Anniversary, Signature Plays revisits the work of three Legacy playwrights with Edward Albee’s The Sandbox, María Irene Fornés’ Drowning, and Adrienne Kennedy’s Funnyhouse of a Negro. Directed by Lila Neugebauer (A.R. Gurney’s The Wayside Motor Inn), this trio of plays, all produced during their author’s original Playwright-in-Residence season, celebrates Signature’s rich and diverse history over the past quarter century.

Please Note: This production contains use of a strobe light as well as haze effects.
