How I Learned What I Learned Begins Performances Tonight
Margo Hall directs August Wilson's play for Marin Theatre Company.
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.
