August Wilson’s celebrated 10-play cycle captures 100 years of African American life during each decade of the 20th century.

Join us for an historic series in The Greene Space as an extraordinary cast of actors and directors — many who worked directly with Wilson — gather to make the first-ever recording of all ten plays in August Wilson’s American Century Cycle. Each play will be presented in the order in which it premiered. This reading is presented on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington.

Directed by Kenny Leon. See full cast list below.

Fences is set in the 1950s and tells the story of Troy, a restless trash-collector and former baseball athlete who, at 53, is struggling to provide for his family. The play won the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the 1987 Tony Award for Best Play.
