Visit our website for FENCES

"A blockbuster and a major American play." – New York Daily News

Fences is one of the most beloved plays in August Wilson’s soaring ten-play cycle, chronicling the African-American experience of the 20th century. This Pulitzer and Tony Award-winning drama tells the gripping story of a father and son and the hopes and dreams which they desperately cling to in rapidly changing mid-century America. Under the inspired direction of Phylicia Rashad (Gem of the Ocean), Fences is August Wilson at his best: challenging the American dream through a poetic, powerful, and deeply personal story. Fences is a transfixing American classic—not to be missed!

“It’s the play itself that keeps audiences on the edge of their seats” – The New York Post
