Herald Loomis has been forced to work in Joe Turner's slave gang for seven years. Now he is searching for the wife he left behind, believing she can help him reclaim his lost identity. Through the people he meets in a Pittsburgh boarding house, he discovers that what he is really seeking is his rightful place in a new world... By the winner of two Pulitzer Prizes, Joe Turner is the masterpiece of one of the path-breaking playwrights of the 20th century. It was also his personal favourite: 'After I wrote it I said to myself: If I die tomorrow, I have fulfilled myself as an artist.'
