Signature Theatre's world premiere of The Painted Rocks at Revolver Creek, written and directed by Athol Fugard, has announced its second one-week extension. Performances will now continue through June 14, after an initial extension through June 7. The show opened May 11 in the Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at the Pershing Square Signature Center.

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, and 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), and Barbara Rubin (dialect coach).
