Signature taps Hwang

Writer's work to get season-long showcase

Off Broadway’s Signature Theater has named David Henry Hwang the Residency One Playwright for its 2012-13 season.

Residency One is the Signature’s new moniker for its annual seasonlong focus on the work of a single playwright. Athol Fugard is the current Residency One scribe, with Signature’s 2011-12 season including two Fugard revivals, “My Children! My Africa!” and “Blood Knot,” as well as the New York preem of his new play, “The Train Driver.”

Program was given the name Residency One to distinguish it from other, newer additions to Signature programming timed to the recent addition of the company’s newly constructed, multistage theater.

Signature has not yet determined which of Hwang’s plays will be produced, although in keeping with past years, it’s likely to be at least two revivals and one newer work. Hwang’s plays include “M. Butterfly,” “Golden Child,” “Yellow Face,” “FOB” and “Chinglish,” which had a short run on Broadway earlier this year.

Further writers and titles for the Signature’s other initiatives, including works in its new-play-centric Residency Five and in its alumni-focused Legacy Program, remain to be set.
