About August Wilson's Fences

Set in the 1950s, this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning play is the 6th play in Wilson's monumental, ten-part 'Pittsburgh Cycle.' Troy Maxson, an African American garbage collector and ex-convict once had a promising career in baseball, but Troy's bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. Fences brings to life the struggles of everyday black Americans.

Absorbing, Thought-provoking, Great writing, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you enjoy human stories with strong central characters and themes of regret, lost opportunities, and interfamilial struggles.

Don’t see it if you're wanting something light and frothy. This is a serious--at times intense--story with an unlikeable central character.

Profound, Great writing, Great acting, Slow, Absorbing

See it if Wilson's father-son conflict drama w/its elements of Greek tragedy gets a solid production at GP Impressive set supports impressive acting

Don’t see it if Wilson's quasi-religious, meta-theatrics are at a minimum here w/director Seraphin keeping a tight focus on the familial cries & whispers
