About This Show

A moving study of emotional depth and the human condition, August Wilson’s Fences follows the story of Troy Maxson – a working-class Black man struggling to provide for his family. His past includes the low of a prison sentence and the high of a promising career with the Negro Baseball League, but it’s Troy’s unrealized dreams that fills his days with resentment and regret. August Wilson’s Fences is a Pulitzer Prize winner for Drama, Tony Award winner for Best Play, and part of Wilson's acclaimed American Century Cycle – a series of 10 plays that charts the African American experience.
