Joe Turner's Come and Gone: Post-Slavery Drama by August Wilson
Celebrating its 100th anniversary season, Plays & Players presents Joe Turner's Come and Gone by two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson. Haunted by seven years on a chain gang, Herald Loomis appears in Pittsburgh searching for his wife who was forcibly removed from him years ago when he was captured and put in a chain gang by a man named Joe Turner. Surrounded by the vibrant tenants of a black boarding house, Loomis fights for his soul and his song in the dawning days of a century without slavery. A Tony nominee for Best Play in 1988, Joe Turner is part of August Wilson's 10-play cycle chronicling the experience of African Americans in the 20th century.
