Seattle Repertory Theatre presents the Northwest premiere of August Wilson's newest and final entry in his 20th century cycle, Radio Golf. Kenny Leon directs.
Set in the Hill District of Pittsburgh of the 1990s, the play focuses on a pair of real estate entrepreneurs who must decide whether to raze history or build upon it, while a mysterious, seemingly ancient man prods them to define who they are and what they stand for.
Harmond Wilks is a mayoral candidate and successful property developer, and with partner Roosevelt Hicks has a fail proof plan to jumpstart the revitalization of his decrepit childhood neighborhood. But when Old Joe enters their office, claiming to own the house on Wylie Street that is to be demolished, the men face choices that will challenge their own understandings of their heritage, their culture, and their future.
