About this show

Pittsburgh's own Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson brings us the first installment of his decade-by-decade chronicle of the African-American experience. Set in 1904 when slavery is still a living memory, Citizen Barlow arrives at the home of Aunt Ester in search of spiritual redemption. At 285 years of age, Aunt Ester is not too old to heal, and she guides him on a soaring, lyrical journey to the City of Bones.
