August Wilson's Gem of the Ocean From New African Grove Theatre Company
August Wilson's Tony-nominated Gem of the Ocean is the first installment of his 10-play decade-by-decade series charting the experience of African Americans in the 20th century. The play is set in 1904 in the Hill District of Pittsburgh, where the 285-year-old Aunt Ester welcomes into her parlor Solly Two Kings, a former slave and scout for the Union Army, and Citizen Barlow, a man in search of healing and a new life. A cleanser of souls, Aunt Ester sends Citizen Barlow on a remarkable voyage aboard the legendary slave ship Gem of the Ocean to the City of Bones, where he must face his ancestors' suffering and his own sins before he can find the redemption he seeks.
