4380 Nights

Until February 18, 2018

A world premiere drama about the post 9/11 world and the American worldview forms part of the 2018 Womenís Voices Theater Festival. DC playwright Annalisa Dias presents a searing new drama that asks its viewers what it means to be American in today's world. With the political climate in turmoil after the 2016 elections, this timely play focuses on the plight of a prisoner in Camp X-Ray, who has been held without charge for 12 years - or 4,380 days. Fear rules his life and his interactions with his jailers, a common theme that has been revealed in the news of late.

Light Years

February 6 - March 4, 2018

Following the recent trend for musicians getting a piece of Broadway musical action (think Sting's The Last Ship, and Gary Barlow's Finding Neverland), the latest entry into this canon is a touching and humorous musical by Robbie Schaefer of the acclaimed folk/rock/indie band Eddie From Ohio , starring Bobby Smith. A partially auto-biographical portrait of his early years in India, and moving to the USA as a child, we also get a rare glimpse into his often fraught relationship with his father, as well as uncovering his father's tragic past.

John Poster


April 3 - 29, 2018

Annie Baker's hit 2015 Off-Broadway play John follows the phenomenal success of her Pulitzer Prize-winning work, The Flick. Making its way to Washington D.C in 2018 for its city premiere, the epic drama will be helmed by Joe Calarco, taking over from original director Sam Gold. An examination into human relationships, John explores the dynamic between the establishment's cheerful elderly owner and two of its guests, a troubled young couple struggling to stay together.

April 17 - June 10, 2018

A charming LGBT coming-of-age story makes its Washington premiere at the Signature Theatre as part of its 2017/18 season! First premiering in Los Angeles' Berkeley Rep in 2010, we venture back to 1993 when flannel and denim were all the rage, and mixtapes were the best way to express your love for someone; enter Girlfriend. Set to the music of Matthew Sweet's alt-rock album of the same name, two young high-school students find love just before they graduate in a delightful exploration of first-love and coming to terms with their sexuality.

The Scotsboro Boys

May 22 - July 1, 2018

Now making its Washington premiere, this musical by John Kander and Fred Ebb (Cabaret and Chicago) is as timely as ever, as it examines one of America's most infamous miscarriages of justice. The Scottsboro Boys is a brave and gripping look at the enduring racial tensions and prejudice that became a turning point for the Civil Rights movement. A recent hit on both sides of the Pond, helmed by the Tony-winning director Susan Stroman in 2010 and 2015, this compelling musical was nominated for twelve Tony Awards, with this production led by Joe Calarco.
