News   August Wilson's Radio Golf Set for 2005 at Los Angeles's Mark Taper Forum
 
Los Angeles's Mark Taper Forum will share the world premiere of August Wilson's upcoming decade cycle finale Radio Golf with Yale Repertory.

The California venue confirmed the company will present the work in August-September of 2005 as part of their season, following the play's debut at the Connecticut theatre in April-May of 2005.

Wilson ends his ten-play cycle which chronicles the African-American experience in the twentieth century by decade with Radio Golf. The 1990s-set work involves real estate developers who look to tear down the home of recurring Wilson character Aunt Esther.

The other plays in Wilson's grand undertaking (in order of decade which the drama is set) include Gem of the Ocean, Joe Turner's Come and Gone, Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, The Piano Lesson, Seven Guitars, Fences, Two Trains Running, Jitney and King Hedley II.

Playwright Wilson is a two-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Fences (1987) and The Piano Lesson (1990). The scribe made his acting debut in May 2003 performing an autobiographical one-man show How I Learned What I Learned at Seattle Repertory Theatre.

The Mark Taper Forum is located at 135 North Grand Ave. in Los Angeles, CA. For more information on the company, visit www.taperahmanson.com.
