Zooman and the Sign

About This Show

“Arguably the most successful Black theatre group in the world” (American Theatre), the Negro Ensemble Company (NEC), our 23/24 season artist-in-residence, returns with a revival of Charles Fuller’s Zooman and the Sign. Set in Philadelphia in 1979, the play explores the effects of gun violence on a family and their struggle to convince apathetic neighbors to take a stand together to achieve justice. Fuller was born and raised in our city, and best known for his Pulitzer Prize-winning work, A Soldier’s Play, originally produced off-Broadway by NEC. Now, we bring this Obie Award-winning play home to celebrate this remarkable playwright and shed light on how his work still resonates today.

Please note, this performance includes mature content and strong language.
