CPCC Theatre presents August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone as Part of Sensoria

 

CPCC Theatre will present August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone on April 10th – 19th in the Pease Auditorium on the CPCC Central Campus as part of the college’s Sensoria Festival.  August Wilson’s Joe Turner’s Come and Gone is directed by Corlis Hayes.

Set in a black boardinghouse in Pittsburgh in 1911, this drama by the author of The Piano Lesson, Seven Guitars and Fences is an installment in the author’s series chronicling black life in each decade of this century.
