Fences by August Wilson presented by the African American Repertory Theater

Saturday, June 1

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.
