Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson's Seven Guitars is a haunting exploration of the African-American experience in 20th-century America. The year is 1948, and blues singer Floyd "Schoolboy" Barton has just been released from jail. He's ready to jump-start his life -- in work and in love -- but fate intervenes in disastrous ways.
