About This Show

Radio Golf was the last play written by August Wilson. It also marks the final decade in August Wilson’s Twentieth Century Cycle. This play tells the story of Harmon Wilks, a man struggling to forge his own path in the shadow of his father’s legacy. Harmon wants to become Pittsburgh’s first black mayor. He sees the Hill District as an untapped resource and his ticket to win the election. His plan to develop the area will gentrify the cultural heart of black Pittsburgh. As he makes his run for office, the neighborhood in which he grew up begins to groan under the weight of his ambition and Harmon learns that not all that glitters is gold.
