Signs

April reads horoscopes. Lydia writes horoscopes. April reads them devoutly. Lydia just makes them up, using the job to make a little extra income while she completes her novel.

"Signs" is a surrealistic play following the concurrent journeys of April and Lydia that explores ideas of determinism, the imperfect nature of communication, and the little things that seem to matter so much to us.

Signs

Recommended by

  • Eugene O'Neill Theater Center:

    It is the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's pleasure to recommend Steven Rathje and their play Signs as a finalist for our 2016 National Playwrights Conference. The play rose through a competitive, anonymous, multileveled selection process that took nearly nine months to execute. As one of 54 finalists out of more than 1,450 submissions, the strength of its writing has allowed this work to prosper in such a competitive selection process. Our readers especially responded to the imaginative whimsy and quick pace of the piece.
