Went during the preview, so have to allow for some flubbed lines, timing and scene change problems. The script was compelling and still very socially relevant. The male actors were quite good, although I found no one outstanding. The set was fine. Lighting was dim enough to put me to sleep in the first few scenes.

This is whose land?
Are Ivy League-educated lawyer, Harmond Wilks, and his long-time friend — newly minted bank executive, Roosevelt Hicks — equal competitors in capitalism’s public-private arena, or are they being used as black front men for white money? With offstage city politics and backroom deals taking a front seat in this searing drama, August Wilson’s tenth and final play in The Pittsburgh Cycle is a riveting masterpiece about loyalty, integrity and the uncompromising desire to achieve the American Dream.
Radio Golf, written in 2005, was August Wilson’s last play before his untimely death in August 2005). It is also the final chapter in The Pittsburgh Cycle. In this stirring drama, an Ivy League educated entrepreneur, Harmond Wilks, and his banking executive friend plan to convert a blighted neighborhood into an expansive shopping mall. Their ultimate goal is to use Wilks’ success as a developer to leverage him into becoming Pittsburgh’s first African American mayor. It’s a dirty political business that includes back room deals and zoning loop holes. When they discover that a building cited for demolition has a history that affects their heritage, these two modern men are forced to get in touch with their past. __Radio Golf __won the 2007 New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Play.
