It's 1969 and change is in the air. But for Memphis, the owner of a rundown diner in a dying Pittsburgh neighborhood, the civil rights movement takes a back seat to more immediate problems. His diner has been slated for demolition in the city's urban renewal plan, but he has a competing offer from a predatory businessman. Caught between idealism and brutal reality, Memphis struggles to determine the fate of the place where his customers gathered for decades to share their struggles, hopes and dreams. Pulitzer Prize-winner August Wilson's searing, humorous, and potent portrait of African-American life in the '60s tells a complex story of the inner lives of ordinary people at a turning point in American history.

My fiance and I loved this show. The best Roundhouse play we've seen yet. It was heartfelt, honest, touching and funny all at once. The actors were excellent and the story really moved nicely. The only criticism would be that the last 15 or so minutes dragged and could have been shortened, but that wouldn't stop me from recommending this play to everyone.
