    Participating members of the cast take questions after the performance of August Wilson's Fences.

    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, Fences is the sixth chapter in August Wilson's groundbreaking ten-play cycle of the African-American experience in the 20th century and the ninth of his plays to be staged by the Huntington, one of Wilson's longstanding artistic homes. Directed by Kenny Leon
