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

The show was very good. The only problem was I was sitting in Sect.C on the side and quite often the actors had their back to me while speaking and I had trouble understanding them. Part was the accent but part was no microphones. Maybe I should have tried the hearing enhancement?
No holds are barred as three southern sisters confront life head on in this hilarious and heartbreaking family drama. Winner of both the Pulitzer Prize and the Drama Critics Circle Award, Crimes has joined the canon of great American plays.
