August Wilson’s Tony-nominated drama set in a boarding house in Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1911.

The play explores the lives of African Americans at the start of the Great Migration to the North as they seek their own identities and contend with racism and discrimination. Most performances are outdoors at August Wilson House, the Pulitzer-winning playwright's boyhood home.


Tickets are $45, with $40 senior/student tickets.
