Tickets are now on sale for the inaugural production of Katori Hall’s Hurt Village at Signature Theatre Company’s Romulus Linney Courtyard Theatre at off-Broadway's new Signature Center. Directed by Patricia McGregor and starring Tonya Pinkins, the world premiere play will begin previews on February 7, open on February 27 and run through March 18.
It’s the end of a long summer in Hurt Village, a housing project in Memphis. A government Hope Grant means relocation for many of the project’s residents, including Cookie, a 13-year-old aspiring rapper, along with her mother Crank and great-grandmother Big Mama. As the family prepares to move, Cookie’s father Buggy unexpectedly returns from a tour of duty in Iraq. Ravaged by the war, Buggy struggles to find a position in his disintegrating community, along with a place in his daughter’s wounded heart.
In addition to Pinkins, Hurt Village will feature Marsha Stephanie Blake, Nicholas Christopher, Corey Hawkins, Ron Cephas Jones, Joaquina Kalukango, Saycon Sengbloh, Charlie Hudson III and Lloyd Watts.
