AUGUST WILSON'S FENCES

Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and Tony Award for Best Play in 1987, August Wilson’s Fences is set in the 1950s and is known as one of Wilson’s “Pittsburgh Plays.”

A moving study of emotional depth and the human condition, it follows the story of Troy Maxson – a working-class Black man struggling to provide for his family. His past includes the high of a promising career with the Negro Baseball League and the low of a prison sentence, while his present is complicated by resentment, regret, and the walls we build around ourselves.
