    A pre-show discussion with members of the Fences artistic team and the Huntington's artistic staff.

    August Wilson's Fences is the sixth chapter in the playwright's groundbreaking ten-play cycle about the African-American experience in the 20th Century and the ninth of Wilson's plays to be staged by the Huntington Theatre Company, one of Wilson's longstanding artistic homes.

    When his rise through the Negro baseball leagues hit the ceiling of racial prejudice, Troy Maxson turned against a world of unfulfilled promises and denied opportunities. But in 1957, his son Cory, an emerging football star, sees his world through very different eyes, and his wife Rose yearns for an outlet for her love. Winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award for Best Play. Directed by Kenny Leon.

      This is an excellent performance of a great play. Although this takes place in a 1950's Pittsburgh African American neighborhood, the themes are universal.
