The production is described as follows: "The year is 1985. King Hedley II has returned from prison looking to rebuild his life, save some money, plant a backyard garden, and start a family. Don't miss this powerful and evocative look at how hope springs from even the hardest of soil. This production is the halfway mark of Two River presenting the 10 plays of August Wilson's American Century Cycle."
