Signal Ensemble Theatre has announced its 2013-14 season, including the United States premiere of a new play by the well-regarded Canadian writer Hannah Moscovitch.

Signal's slate, the company's eleventh, begins in August with Moscovitch's "This is War," a piece about Canadian forces in Afghanistan. It continues in January with "Plainsong," the Eric Schmiedl adaptation of the novel by Kent Haruf (first seen at the Denver Center Theatre Company), and ends with a new John Steinhagen musical, "The Next Thing," a Hollywood love story, premiering in May.

The theater is located at 1802 W. Berenice Ave. in Chicago.
