Derrick Sanders directs August Wilson’s King Hedley II as part of Signature’s August Wilson Series.
Set in a backyard in the decaying Hill District of Pittsburgh, King Hedley II follows the characters created by August Wilson in Seven Guitars. A woman is tormented by a secret she has kept for 36 years, while her only son returns home after serving time for murder to find a neighborhood riddled with crime, poverty and broken families. King’s epic struggle to survive is at the center of this poetic portrayal of life in the inner city during the 1980’s.
