This acclaimed drama by August Wilson, directed by Rikki Howie, is the ninth of Wilson’s acclaimed ten-play American Century Cycle. Set in the Pittsburgh Hill District of 1985, this Tony nominated play tells the story of King Hedley, an ex-con attempting to rebuild his life by starting a family and selling stolen refrigerators so he might eventually buy a video store. The play comments critically on the supply-side economic theories of the day, examining whether their stated aim of providing trickle-down benefits to all Americans truly improved the lot of urban African Americans.
