Brownbox Theatre proudly presents the Obie Award winning play ZOOMAN AND THE SIGN by Charles Fuller.
ZOOMAN AND THE SIGN, a literate urban drama, tells the story of Zooman who senselessly terrorizes his community. His most recent crime is the killing of a 12 year-old black girl on a street filled with witnesses all of whom are afraid to talk. The dead girl's bereaved father posts a sign accusing the entire community of cowardice in the face of the ever escalating violence. An incendiary drama by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of A Soldier's Play.
"As shocking as today's and tomorrow's headlines...an arresting and compassionate piece." - The New York Daily News
ZOOMAN AND THE SIGN was first presented Off-Broadway by Negro Ensemble Company, under artistic director Douglas Turner Ward and managing director Gerald S. Krone, at Theater Four in New York City on December 7, 1980. It was directed by Douglas Turner Ward
The Seattle production of ZOOMAN AND THE SIGN by Charles Fuller is directed by Tyrone Brown in association with Brownbox Theatre, an African American theatre company dedicated to "re-imagined Black theatre."
