The Off-Broadway theatre company Signature Theatre has set its complete 2024-25 season, which includes three new plays and one revival to be presented between fall 2024 and spring 2025.

The first play in the season is Bad Kreyol, a world-premiere play written by Dominique Morisseau and directed by Tiffany Nichole Greene in fall 2024. The play follows a Haitian American who visits her cousin in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. There, she learns more about her identity, her understanding of what it means to "do good," and the fraught relationship between America and Haiti at large.

Morisseau has presented multiple works at Signature in recent seasons, including Paradise Blue in 2018, Confederates in 2022, and a revival of her 2013 work Sunset Baby earlier this year.

Signature's winter 2025 production is the world premiere of Grangeville by Samuel D. Hunter, the writer of the award-winning plays A Case for the Existence of God (which ran at Signature in 2022) and The Whale. Named for a remote Idaho town, the play follows two estranged half-brothers who respectively live in Grangeville and Amsterdam, and they virtually reconnect to arrange care for their sick mother.

The final production, set for spring 2025, is a revival of Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl. The playwright reunites with director Les Waters, who staged the show's world-premiere production at Yale Repertory Theatre in 2006. The play recenters the Greek myth of Orpheus and Eurydice, best known as a tragic love story, as the story of Eurydice and her relationship to her late father, who she meets when she descends to the underworld.

Ruhl is currently presenting a revival of her play Orlando, an adaptation of the classic Virginia Woolf novel, at Signature.

Additionally, a presentation of the new play Fish, by Melis Aker, will run for four performances in September 2024. The show is about a teenager who catfishes members of ISIS online in search of answers about her brother's disappearance.

All productions will be staged at the Pershing Square Signature Center on West 42nd Street.
