Signs of Life
by Deborah Brevoort
This play seems like a hilarious comedy with two lost souls finding themselves and America; but then you suddenly realize it means so much more.
On a magical night in New Jersey, the stars talk to Abe, Sal gets a tattoo and a journey begins. Abe and Sal take off across the country, following the stars and looking for Birth and Life. Signs of Life is loosely inspired by the Sarah and Abraham story from the Old Testament - set on the Interstate highways of the American West. This two-character play is a comic meditation on faith, doubt, fertility and spirituality.
