About This Show

The season opens with the Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fences, by August Wilson, directed by Lou Bellamy. Set in 1957, Fences tells the story of Troy Maxon, a baseball player whose prime came before Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier. When his rapid rise through the Negro leagues hits the ceiling of racial prejudice, Troy is forced to let go of his dream of major league success. This is a powerful and heartbreaking tale of a man who by all rights should have been an American legend.
