About this show

Plays & Players presents August Wilson's Joe Turner's Come and Gone, by August Wilson, directed by Daniel Student. The play is set in 1911 as emancipated slaves move north in search of employment and a chance to start over. Seth and Bertha Holly's boarding house in Pittsburgh offers a new place for many to call home. Their routines are shaken when an angry and lost man arrives looking for his wife he hadn't seen for years after he was captured and put in a chain gang by a man named Joe Turner. These once strangers are forced to confront their own demons and to come together to help him find his way.
