Fences at the Duchess Theatre

US playwright August Wilson wrote this fabulous play back in 1983 and it’s as relevant as ever, one of the 20th century’s greatest American dramas. It stars the character Troy Maxson, once a gifted athlete who was denied big time fame and fortune. These days he struggles to keep heart and soul together in Pittsburgh, resentful and angry. This is really powerful stuff!

Now he will be looking to repeat the success, this time as the hard-boiled anti-hero Troy Maxson in August Wilson’s 1983 Pulitzer Prize-winning play Fences at the Duchess Theatre.
