August Wilson was one of America’s most celebrated playwrights, and Fences was arguably his greatest work. Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama – as well as Tony Awards for Best Play and, decades later, Best Revival of a Play – Fences is a powerful drama that tells the story of Troy Maxson. A former Negro League Baseball star who now makes his living as a garbage man in 1957, Maxson is a man consumed with frustration over the color barrier that kept him from being a success in Major League Baseball. As he struggles to provide for his family, their relationships – infected by bitterness – suffer. A truly significant American play, the New York Post once hailed it as “one of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre.”
