Fences by August Wilson presented by the African American Repertory Theater

Friday, May 24, 2013

Fences by August Wilson Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1987 Tony Award for Best Play Pittsburgh, 1957 - the Civil Rights Movement is beginning, and new doors of opportunity are slowly creaking open. With change on the horizon, Cory Maxson has a chance to do something his father Troy never did – play pro ball. But Troy’s own failure to realize his dreams creates a paralyzing fear that threatens his son’s future. What happens to a dream deferred? August Wilson’s Fences brings this question to startling and heartbreaking life. Much like Hansberry’s A Raisin in the Sun, Fences challenges our worship of the American Dream by examining the prejudices on which that dream is based.
