WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Ron OJ Parson directs August Wilson's 1985 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning masterpiece, Fences. Set in 1950s Pittsburgh, the drama follows Troy Maxson, a former baseball player in the Negro Leagues, now reduced to collecting trash. Troy must deal with his headstrong football-player son, who has a chance to go so much further than he did; and with his wife, who reevaluates their marriage when Troy comes home with the baby he fathered with another woman. Additional Saturday matinees @ 3pm selected weeks.
