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.

It was a good performance...perfect for an Austen fan like me. Mrs. Bennett and Mr. Collins were hilarious. I was a little bothered by the comedy of Mr.Darcy because I love him serious and full of himself (the way Austen wrote it)...but I got over it.
