The production will include one-acts by Edward Albee, Adrienne Kennedy, and María Irene Fornés.
Tony winner Frank Wood (Hughie), Tony nominees Alison Fraser (First Daughter Suite) and Sahr Ngaujah (Fela!), and more will star in Signature Plays, a collection of dramas by Edward Albee, María Irene Fornés, and Adrienne Kennedy at the Pershing Square Signature Center. Lila Neugebauer will direct the Signature Theatre production, which runs May 3-June 12.
