Set in segregated Pittsburgh in the 1950’s, FENCES depicts the life of Troy Maxson, a former Negro League baseball star now scraping by as a sanitation worker. A towering figure facing thwarted aspirations, Troy attempts to assert control in his life through his relationships with his wife and son. But even as he takes responsibility for their safety and well-being, he betrays them each in ways that will forever alter their lives. Part of August Wilson’s 10-play Century Cycle, FENCES explores the walls we build around ourselves and our loved ones, while also illuminating one family’s struggles in a racist society. August Wilson’s FENCES is the winner of the Pulitzer Prize, a two-time Tony Award-winner, and one of the most groundbreaking plays of the 20th century.
