A CHRISTMAS CAROL
A CHRISTMAS CAROL
By August Wilson
May 2 – July 1
Directed by Lou Bellamy
Husband, father, former athlete, garbage collector – 53-year old Troy struggles to define himself both inside and out of his 1950s Pittsburgh home. Winner of the Tony Award for Best Play, the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, and the Drama Desk Award for Outstanding Play, Fences asks “What makes us choose the things we keep at a distance and what we decide to let in?”
This will be the seventh of Wilson’s 10-play “American Century Cycle” that the Playhouse has staged.
Director Lou Bellamy (Obie award for Two Trains Running) is the founding Artistic Director of Penumbra Theatre Company, which has produced more August Wilson productions than any company in the world, including the premiere of Jitney!
