Fences
by August Wilson
February 5 - 21, 2010
Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, the Tony Award and the New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award, Fences is must–see theatre! When Troy Maxson’s rapid rise through the Negro leagues hit the ceiling of racial prejudice, this legendary baseball player was forced to let go of his dream for major league success. Years later, this Pittsburgh garbage collector’s son has an opportunity to achieve the dream his father could not. Can Troy quiet his own demons enough to support his son, or will he strike out once more? Set in 1957, Fences is theheartbreaking story of a man and his last chance at bat.
