One of America's most celebrated playwrights, Fences was arguably August Wilson's greatest work. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama -- as well as Tony Awards for Best Play and, decades later, Best Revival of a Play -- Fences is a powerful drama that tells the story of Troy Maxson. A former star of Negro League Baseball who now makes a living as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh, Maxson is a man consumed with frustration concerning the color barrier that kept him from being a success in Major League Baseball. As he struggles to provide for his family, their relationships -- infected by bitterness -- suffer. A truly significant American play, the New York Post once hailed it as "one of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre." Learn More
