School-Time Performance: The Sign in Sidney Brustein's Window
Education

Grades 9—12

 
CURRICULUM CONNECTIONS: ELA (Dramatic Literature), Theater, Social Studies (NYC History)

Introduce your students to a sweeping drama of identity, idealism, and love from Lorraine Hansberry, the seminal American playwright behind A Raisin in the Sun. Starring Oscar Isaac (Scenes from a Marriage, Hamlet, Star Wars) and Rachel Brosnahan (The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel, Dead for a Dollar, Othello) and directed by Anne Kauffman, BAM’s production marks the first major New York revival in 50 years.

Hansberry invites us into Greenwich Village in the 60s, crafting a razor-sharp portrait of a diverse group of friends whose progressive dreams can’t quite match reality. At the center are Sidney and Iris Brustein, fighting to see if their marriage—with all its crackling wit, passion, and petty cruelty—can survive Sidney’s ideals. As if reaching across the decades, Hansberry’s incisive final work offers shockingly contemporary provocations.

Each performance includes a hands on pre- or post-show workshop lasting approximately 45 minutes, led by a BAM teaching artist at no additional cost!

Note: This show includes content about suicide. Please use your judgment in deciding if this content is appropriate for your students. Pre- and post-show workshops can provide additional context for this sensitive topic.
