by August Wilson
directed by Margo Hall

In this one-man piece, legendary American playwright August Wilson revisits his life as a young black man growing up in Pittsburgh’s Hill District; a neighborhood that later serves as inspiration for his acclaimed American Century Cycle of plays. Through powerful anecdotes and lessons-learned, Wilson imparts his first encounters with love, friendship, music, racism and violence—experiences that profoundly shape him, and his writing.

“We all know the plays of August Wilson but many of us, especially the younger generation, don’t know much about the man himself. This play allows us to be in a room with him. His gift of storytelling, sense of humor and his love of history are expressed in an intimate night at the theater.”
—Margo Hall, Director
