About the event

Fences is a 1985 play by American playwright August Wilson. Set in the 1950s, it is the sixth in Wilson's ten-part “THE AMERICAN CENTURY CYCLE." The play won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1987 Tony Award for Best Play. Fences was first developed at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's 1983 National Playwrights Conference and premiered at the Yale Repertory Theatre in 1985.


Fences centers on the Maxons, an African-American family living in Pittsburgh in 1957. Patriarch Troy, a sanitation worker, is an embittered former player in baseball’s Negro Leagues. Matriarch Rose runs the household, stretching Troy’s meager paycheck to keep things going. Their teen son Cory is being recruited to play college football, a source of contention with his father. Also on the scene are Troy’s older son Lyons, brain-damaged brother Gabriel and drinking buddy Bono. The main action of the play takes places over a several month period that changes the nature of the Maxons’ marriage and Cory’s path in life.
