Joan Schenkar was an American playwright of experimental works, and biographer of Patricia Highsmith. Signs of Life is “A bizarre and witty comedy presenting eminent Victorians actual and fictitious as they perform their lives and experiment on their loved ones… at the center of the play is a mad tea party at which Dr. Sloper and Henry James continually toast the health of "the ladies" who meet only in the men's stories of them.T his is one of the most widely produced experimental comedies of its kind.” (Concord Theatricals, 2022).
