Since you are citing from a published copy of the play, you'd cite it basically like a book. This is an example from MLA Style Center:

 Miller, Arthur. Death of a Salesman. Bloomsbury Publishing, 2015.

Your in text citation is always derived from your works cited entry, so an in text example would be: 

"you quote" (Miller, 45)

Please note that MLA also states that performance of a play is cited differently. Here is the example that they give for a performance:

“Ramona’s Umbrella.” By Alex Marino, directed by Jeannine Overstreet, performance

by Tania Milena, Tiny Plays Production Company, 15 Aug. 2017, Second

Street Theater, Sacramento, CA.
