Signal Ensemble presents the world premiere of Successors. Mayor DeKoven has announced his sudden retirement. He is the third generation of DeKoven mayors. The city is surprised. His kids are shocked. They wonder which of them will get his endorsement for mayor: greedy partier Marty, the smart but uptight Patricia or adult delinquent Scott.

Successors is August, Osage County starring the Daleys.
