Theater Lecture Series: Fences
Tuesday, April 8th
Creekside Room - 7:30pm
Artistic director Jasson Minadakis will talk about the company's premiere of August Wilson's Fences, 1987 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award Winner.
Troy Maxson, one of the greatest characters of American theater, has stepped up to the plate too many times in his life only to go down swinging. Shut out of the big leagues by prejudice, the former Negro League homerun king is now a garbage collector just trying to make a living and do right by his family. When his youngest son shows promise on the high school football team, Troy must come to terms with his past disappointments or risk tearing his family apart.
