Directed by Ruben Santiago-Hudson in a year devoted to the works and legacy of the late Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright, Seven Guitars will play July 31-Sept. 23, according to a mailing sent out by Signature.
"Hope and heartbreak abound in Pittsburgh's Hill district as seven people share frustration, joy and loss in 1948," according to the not-for-profit. "Floyd 'Schoolboy' Barton, an aspiring blues musician, returns home to seek his fortune and reclaim his woman; a sick old man longs for an heir to carry on his name; and three single women cope with betrayal and lost dreams. Like seven musical instruments, each one strikes a singular note in a discordant world."
Seven Guitars played Broadway in 1996 and won Ruben Santiago-Hudson a Tony Award for Best Featured Actor in a Play. It was nominated for eight Tony Awards, including Best Play.
