Signature Theatre Will Premiere Kenneth Lonergan’s ‘Medieval Play’

Signature Theatre will produce the world premiere of Kenneth Lonergan’s new play Medieval Play, which Lonergan will also direct.

The production runs May 15 – June 24, 2012 with a June 7 opening night in The End Stage Theatre at the Company’s new Frank Gehry-designed home The Pershing Square Signature Center (480 West 42nd Street between 9th and 10th Avenues).

Casting will be announced at a later date.

The show is about two French mercenary knights who set out on a quest for relative moral redemption against the classic comic background of late 14th century ecclesiastical politics. It’s a story of friendship, love, noble feats of arms, indiscriminate brutality, the progressive refinement of medieval table manners and the general decline of the chivalric ideal at the onset of the Great Papal Schism of 1378. 

Tickets and season subscriptions can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 212-244-7529 or online at www.signaturetheatre.org.
