By August Wilson

Fences is the sixth chapter in August Wilson’s groundbreaking ten-play cycle of the African-American experience in the 20th century. The play depicts the life of Troy Maxson, a former Negro League baseball player, thwarted in his dreams of a Major League career, who struggles to provide for his family and break free from the boundaries imposed upon him. But in 1957, his son Cory, an emerging football star, sees the world through very different eyes, and his wife Rose, yearns for an outlet for her love. With the intersection of old prejudices and changing opportunities, Fences is a powerful drama filled with passionate love and thundering rage, generous laughter and searing pain. Chances are, you will be challenged to leave the theater with your emotions in tact with this powerful play. Fences was most recently made into an Oscar nominated film starring Denzel Washington and Viola Davis, who took home the award for Best Supporting Actress.

*Performances for Fences have been postponed. Please check back soon for rescheduled dates.
