August Wilson's FENCES
Directed by Jon Herbert
In this American classic, Troy Maxson, a former star baseball player, is excluded from the major leagues, as a Black man. He is deemed ‘too old’ by the time the Majors begins admitting Black athletes. Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his son, who now wants his own chance to become a football star, and his wife, who reevaluates their marriage when Troy comes home with a secret that changes their lives. Fences is a lyrical, heartbreaking love song sung in Wilson’s unparalleled poetry, about people whose hearts beat vast and deep. This production contains adult language.
