About Radio Golf

August Wilson’s Radio Golf

By August Wilson

Directed by Brandon J. Dirden

Director Brandon J. Dirden (King Hedley II, Seven Guitars) returns to Two River to direct our sixth production from The American Century Cycle—Radio Golf, the Cycle’s 10th and final play, set in 1997. Real-estate developer Harmond Wilks is determined to become the first black mayor of Pittsburgh, and to revitalize the Hill District. Starbucks, Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods are ready to move in. But one particular house on the development site, at 1839 Wylie Avenue, must be torn down, a casualty of urban blight. And that house belonged to Wilson’s legendary Aunt Ester—forcing Harmond, and the Hill District itself, into a battle between the past and the future.


You are committed to experiencing the entirety of August Wilson’s 10-play American Century Cycle.

You’re interested in the process of community gentrification: how it starts, and how it may be halted.

You’re a political news junkie interested in the story of a young African-American man setting out on his political career.

You have ever been torn between what you owe to your past, and what you desire for your future.

You enjoy thought-provoking explorations of how to honor cultural legacy and history.

You remember how the 1990s shaped much of what America is going through today, or you want to explore it for the first time.
