Mr. Washington and Ms. Davis prove that lovers don't have to be as young and star-crossed as Romeo and Juliet to generate shiver-making heat and pathos.

Ben Brantley, New York Times

Closed 10 Jul 2010

Fences is one of the ten plays in August Wilson's sweeping Pittsburgh Cycle, focusing on the 20th century African-American experience. Fences takes place over eight years from 1957 to 1965.

Set in 1950s Pittsburgh, the drama follows Troy Maxson, a former baseball player in the Negro Leagues, now reduced to collecting trash.

Troy must deal with his headstrong football-player son, who has a chance to go so much further than he did, and with his wife, who reevaluates their marriage when Troy comes home with the baby he fathered with another woman. Winner of the 1985 Pulitzer Prize for drama.
