Casting Announced for World Premiere of The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek

Athol Fugard directs his self-penned drama at off-Broadway's Signature Theatre.

Athol Fugard's The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek will make its world premiere at the Signature Center this spring.

Casting has been announced for Signature Theatre's world premiere of The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek, written and directed by Athol Fugard. Performances are set to run from April 21-May 31 in the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center, with an official May 11 opening.

The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek follows an aging farm laborer, Nukain, who has spent his life transforming the rocks at Revolver Creek into a vibrant garden of painted flowers. Now, the final unpainted rock, as well as his young companion Bokkie, has forced Nukain to confront his legacy as a painter, a person, and a black man in 1980s South Africa. When the landowner's wife arrives with demands about the painting, the profound rifts of a country hurtling toward the end of apartheid are laid bare.

The cast includes Bianca Amato (LCT's Macbeth) as Elmarie, Leon Addison Brown (Signature's The Train Driver) as Nukain, Caleb McLaughlin (The Lion King) as Bokkie, Tony Award nominee Sahr Ngaujah (Fela!) as Jonathan.

The design team includes Christopher H. Barreca (scenic design), Susan Hilferty (costume design), Stephen Strawbridge (lighting design), Stowe Nelson (sound design), Barbara Rubin (dialect coach).
