August Wilson (Playwright)
Summary Troy Maxson (Denzel Washington), a Pittsburgh sanitation worker, never realized his dream of becoming a pro baseball player because of the color barrier. Now, he and his wife (Viola Davis) must come to terms with their child's own hopes for a football scholarship, while also confronting issues like infidelity and the racism in Troy's workplace.
Age May be inappropriate for 12 and under. Children under the age of 4 are not permitted in the theatre.
Our Recommendation Under the direction of Kenny Leon, August Wilson's Fences is funny, surprising, and moving. Despite its being set in the 1950s, it also continues to feel relevant today as it deals with broken families and broken dreams. Viola Davis is wonderful as always, and Denzel Washington gives one of his finest performances to date as the charismatic and hard-working yet frustrating and deeply flawed Troy Maxson.
