This series of events presents a unique opportunity for the entire University to read, discuss, and explore one of August Wilson's most famous plays set in the Hill District of Pittsburgh. Fences is a timeless story about the strengths and flaws of the human family and what it means to live in an imperfect world. African American playwright August Wilson won a Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award for the play. The second event in this series, this reading will be led by Christopher Rawson, senior lecturer in English. The reading will feature professional local actors.
This series is also sponsored by the Departments of Anthropology and English, and the Humanities Center. For more information on this event or the series, click here or email Philip Kao at firstname.lastname@example.org. Free copies of the play are available to a limited number of people.
