News   Wilson's King Hedley II Rides Into North London's Tricycle Dec. 10

Playwright August Wilson's King Hedley II, the latest addition to his acclaimed cycle of plays chronicling the twentieth-century African-American experience will be seen at the Tricycle Theatre in North London.

Wilson's last London production, Jitney, was a huge success at the National, where it deservedly won an Olivier award.

King Hedley II is set in a family on the edge of breakdown during the 1980's. King Hedley is an ex-con at war with his past and his present. He strives to come to terms with his relationships with Ruby, the mother he's never lived with; her ex-lover Elmore; Tonya, his pregnant wife; Mister, his partner in crime; and Stool Pigeon, his God-fearing neighbor.

A brilliant study in the choices that a man has to make, King Hedley II previews at the Tricycle from Dec. 10, opens on Dec, 11 and runs until Feb. 8, 2003.
