How I Learned What I Learned begins performances tonight at Marin Theatre Company.

Margo Hall directs August Wilson's script, described as follows: "In this one-man piece, Wilson walks us through his life as a young black man growing up in Pittsburgh's Hill District; a neighborhood that later serves as inspiration for his acclaimed American Century Cycle of plays. Through powerful anecdotes and lessons-learned, Wilson imparts his first encounters with love, friendship, music, racism and violence — experiences that profoundly shape him, and his writing.""

Steven Anthony Jones stars as August Wilson. The creative team includes Edward E. Haynes Jr. (scenic design), Stephanie Anne Johnson (lighting design), ​Katherine Nowacki (costume design), and Everett Elton Bradman (sound design). Liz Matos is the stage manager and Laura A. Brueckner the production dramaturg.

Performances continue through February 3.
