Kenny Leon directs August Wilson's Radio Golf as part of the August Wilson Festival.
Aunt Ester's house at 1839 Wylie Avenue is scheduled for demolition to make way for Bedford Hills, a slick new real estate venture designed to revive Pittsburgh's depressed Hill District-and boost Harmond Wilks' chances of becoming the city's first black mayor.
But first, the government must declare the historic neighborhood blighted, unleashing federal money for its development. All goes according to plan until a mysterious stranger, claiming ownership of the house, forces Wilks to reconsider his path to success. A contemporary play infused with the spirits and dreams of generations past, playwright August Wilson's last work for the stage completes his extraordinary 20th century cycle of the African-American experience. This production makes the Goodman the only theater in the country to have produced each work in the Pulitzer Prize- and Tony Award-winning playwright's remarkable cycle.
