Twain’s timeless classic sweeps us down the mighty Mississippi as the irrepressible Huck Finn helps his friend Jim, a slave, escape to freedom at the mouth of the Ohio River. Propelled by an award winning score from Roger Miller, the king of country music, this jaunty journey provides a brilliantly theatrical celebration of pure Americana.
August Wilson’s Fences
April 12 – 21, 2013
Winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, August Wilson’s “Fences” is a sensational drama focusing on Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. Written by the author of “The Piano Lesson,” “Fences” will be part of the Sensoria Festival.
