South Coast Repertory presents a new production of August Wilson's Fences, the drama about tensions in a Pittsburgh family in the 1950s.
Fences, according to press materials, centers on "Troy Maxson. Once a baseball star in the Negro League, now a garbage collector fighting for promotion, he faces middle age with scaled down dreams. But as he struggles to hold on to his dignity and his family, Troy puts up fences between himself and those he most wants to protect—his son, his wife, even his loyal friend, who see the world through different, more hopeful, eyes."
The South Coast Repertory production is directed by Seret Scott and boasts a cast including Charlie Robinson (TV's "Night Court"), Juanita Jennings, Larry Bates, Gregg Daniel, Brandon J. Dirden, Baron Kelly and, in alternating performances, Skye Whitebear and Sofya Ogunseitan.
You're invited to spend an evening filled with personal tales of difficult choices, bad breaks, worse men and some of the most glorious songs ever written. It's an intimate evening, up close with a legend.
So pull up a chair and order up a drink. Because she's got a life to sing. Tickets as low as $85!
