About this product
- DescriptionThe concluding work in one of the most ambitious dramatic projects ever undertaken . . . a play that could well be Mr. Wilson s most provocative. Ben Brantley, The New York Times Radio Golf is a rich, carefully wrought human tapestry that is colorful, playful, thoughtful and compelling. Ed Kaufman, The Hollywood Reporter Radio Golf is August Wilson s final play. Set in 1990 Pittsburgh, it is the conclusion of his Century Cycle Wilson s ten-play chronicle of the African American experience throughout the twentieth century and is the last play he completed before his death. With Radio Golf Wilson s lifework comes full circle as Aunt Ester s onetime home at 1839 Wylie Avenue (the setting of the cycle s first play) is slated for demolition to make way for a slick new real estate venture aimed to boost both the depressed Hill District and Harmond Wilks chance of becoming the city s first black mayor. A play in which history, memory, and legacy challenge tions of progress and country club ideals, Radio Golf has been produced throughout the country and will come to Broadway this season. August Wilson s plays include Gem of the Ocean, Joe Turner s Come and Gone, Ma Rainey s Black Bottom, The Pia Lesson, Seven Guitars, Fences, Two Trains Running, Jitney, King Hedley II, and Radio Golf. They have been produced at theaters across the country, on Broadway, and throughout the world.
