Troy Maxson was once a gifted athlete but was denied his shot at the big time because a black man wasn’t allowed to play in the major leagues. Struggling as a sanitation worker in Pittsburgh and resentful of a world he believes denied him chances at every turn, he directs his anger at his loyal wife, Rose, and a son whose dreams of football stardom fuel a bitter feud. Set between the Korean and Vietnam wars, August Wilson’s universal story of an American family trying to hold itself together and of what happens when a man is robbed of his dreams will strike a chord in every heart.
Our private reception in the lobby of the theater after the crowd clears out is a special opportunity. With no evening rehearsal on Sunday, cast members often join us for Champaign and chocolates. Our interaction gives insight to the play and the life of a repertory actor.
Afterwards, join us for a short walk to the Twisted Vine Bistro for early supper or whatever. Your theater ticket is a coupon for a complimentary glass of wine with any entrée.
