Chasing dreams and nightmares, the characters in King Hedley II inhabit a world filled with deadly family squabbles, messianic prophecies, and dark humor. Still, they remain pointed toward the future, their pockets lined with fresh hope and an abiding faith in their own abilities and heroics. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson's latest play is directed by Marion McClinton. This new drama extends Wilson's extraordinary cycle of plays that chronicle the African-American experience through each decade of the 20th century. The drama features Brian Stokes Mitchell, Charles Brown, Viola Davis, Lou Myers, Monté Russell, and Leslie Uggams.
