APA citation for a play is similar to the ctiation format used for books. In general, the format is as follows:

Author. (Year). Title of play (Editors, Eds.). City: Publisher.

When listing the name of the author, list the last name first, then a comma, and then the first initial. The title of the play should be written without capitalization (with the exception of the first letter of the first word and any proper nouns within the title) and without formatting such as italics or quotation marks. In parentheses after the play's title, list the play's editor or editors, followed by "Ed." (for one editor) or "Eds." (for more than one editor).
