“Genuinely glorious!”—The New York Times
“Fences is thrilling. Gorgeous and unmissable!”—The New Yorker
August Wilson’s timeless drama about fathers and sons has been a hit on Broadway and all over the world ever since it burst on stage in 1987.
Still bitter over never being given a chance to play in the all-white major leagues, Troy Maxson and his teenaged son Cory enact an age-old battle of wills when Cory wants to pursue his own dreams of going to college on a football scholarship. Fences is a heartbreaking family drama and a monumental exploration of the African-American experience in America.
