WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Victor Williams (King of Queens) stars as Troy Maxon in August Wilson's Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award winning drama about a man of mythic proportions forced to wrestle with the reality of his life. A sanitation worker and onetime Negro League baseball player, Troy is the heart and heartbreak of this iconic story of dreams denied, fathers and sons, and America's legacy of racism. Fences is one of the most beloved plays of the 20th Century written by "a major writer, combining a poet's ear for vernacular with a robust sense of humor (political and sexual), a sure instinct for crackling dramatic incident and a passionate commitment to a great subject." (The New York Times). The cast will also feature People's Light Company Member, Melanye Finister.
