Fences

September 29, 2019 - October 27, 2019
2:00 PM, 7:30 PM

Set in segregated Pittsburgh in the 1950s, Fences depicts the life of Troy Maxson, a former Negro League baseball star now scraping by as a sanitation worker. A towering figure facing thwarted aspirations, Troy attempts to assert control in his life through his relationships with his wife and son. But even as he takes responsibility for their safety and well-being, he betrays them each in ways that will forever alter their lives. Part of August Wilson’s 10-play Century Cycle, Fences explores the walls we build around ourselves and our loved ones, while also illuminating one family’s struggles in a racist society.

Craig Wallace (A Christmas CarolDeath of a Salesman) and Erika Rose (Mosaic Theater Company's Queens Girl in Africa, Woolly Mammoth’s An Octoroon) play the roles of Troy and Rose Maxson. The production will be directed by Timothy Douglas.
