Gem of the Ocean
Tickets and Information
WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
From the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Piano Lesson, Gem of the Ocean is one of the last works written by the great American playwright August Wilson. Set in Philadelphia in 1904 (with slavery a not-so-distant memory) you will meet Citizen Barlow, desperately in need of cleansing his soul when another man is wrongfully accused of Barlow's crimes; his spiritual guide and sage, 285-year-old Aunt Ester Tyler; and her suitor Solly Two Kings, who was a conductor on the Underground Railroad. Treat yourself to August Wilson's unmatched story-telling prowess in this gem of a play, theatrical and rich with poetry, music, and humor. Please note: This production contains mature language and themes.
