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

This rarely done musical fit right into the confines of the Gloucester Stage Company.
Great voices throughout the performance. Victoria Thornsbury captured the young innocent orphan and what a great voice. Gus Curry played the angry, cynical Paul who finally succumbs to her gentleness and love.
All of the cast were fun to watch especially Shannon Lee Jones and her caddish boyfriend, Daniel Robert Sullivan.
Going to Gloucester Stage Company in the summer, is wonderful way to spend a summer afternoon or evening.
