A rash of church burnings breaks out across Alabama in the mid-1990s. A small town must question the foundations on which they have built their collective and individual lives. And a nation as a whole must confront historically prevalent societal injustices as it prepares for a new century. In New Dramatist member Marcus Gardley’s play, Every Tongue Confess, these threads weave into a blues-soaked, gospel-stirred, new-age parable that the Washingtonian hailed during its 2010 premiere, in a nod to a line of dialogue from the play, as “hotter than grits on Al Green’s chest.”

While centering on a painful national story, Gardley hones in on characters that news outlets often neglect. He sets sad scenes up against funny ones and subtle lines against outlandish ones to paint an authentic portrait of the human experience.

Though having only recently celebrated its second birthday, the August Wilson Center commands a striking architectural confidence. Its two-story steel-and-glass sail juts into the night sky with the bravado of a toddler who just lassoed his first neighborhood cat. Within the steal and glass, a 486-seat theater hosts plays, dance performances, and lectures while multiple exhibition galleries display art and cultural treasures for the community. The center draws on the legacy and culture of African Americans from Western Pennsylvania, infusing each curation with a celebration of rich history.
