Art Forms & Theatre Concepts presents August Wilson’s Fences, a Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama from his well-known Pittsburgh Cycle, consisting of ten plays, each set in a different decade and aiming to explicate the Black experience in the 20th century. The story follows Troy Maxson, former Negro league baseball athlete turned sanitation worker, depicting race relations in 1950’s Pittsburgh with uncommon richness, density and emotion. In this pre-civil rights movement moment, the tension is palpable as Troy comes to terms with a world he never had access to and his youngest son looks for his own chance to play ball.
