When the mysterious and sultry Vanda walks into playwright Thomas Novachek's office, he thinks the search for the perfect lead in his latest production might finally be over. But her audition quickly turns into a seductive and erotic power play that'll make you wonder who's really running the show.

- "Luminous...Wilson is at the top of his form. There are few playwrights who can touch him." --<em>New York Times</em>
<p>What does freedom feel like? A Tony Award nominee for best play in 2005, August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean delves into the magical awakening of Citizen, a man seeking a new life at the bustling home of 287-year-old Aunt Ester. Ester, the fiery and spiritual matriarch of a tight-knit group of local characters, sets Citizen off on a journey that gives testament to the incredible complexity of what it really means to be free.</p> <p>Ruben Santiago-Hudson, whose 2002 hit Lackawanna Blues was recently adapted by HBO Films, directs this new A.C.T. production. No stranger to Wilson's oeuvre, Santiago-Hudson originated the role of Caesar in Broadway's Gem of the Ocean and received the 1996 Tony Award for his performance in Wilson's Seven Guitars. </p>
