An iconic American playwright’s magnum opus
What is perhaps August Wilson’s most well-known play may also be his most powerful. In segregated 1957 Pittsburgh, former Negro League baseball player Troy Maxson is now scraping by as a sanitation worker. Once a towering figure in his community, he now only exerts control over his wife and two sons. Troy’s desire to protect his loved ones from oppression grows warped by his stubbornness and pride. A devastating look at a man and his family’s strained relationships, Fences is a must-see Pulitzer Prize-winning drama, returning to the Trinity Rep stage for the first time in over 30 years.
