August Wilson's celebrated 10-play cycle captures 100 years of African American life during each decade of the 20th century. Join us for an historic series in The Greene Space as an extraordinary cast of actors and directors — many who worked directly with Wilson — gather to make the first-ever recording of all ten plays in August Wilson's American Century Cycle.
Radio Golf is set in 1997 in Pittsburgh's Hill District. It tells the story of a charming, powerful African-American politician who is running for the highest office of his career with the support of his savvy wife. As he steps into political prominence, his plans collide with his past.
Directed by Marion McClinton and featuring Rocky Carroll, John Earl Jelks, Sharon Washington, James A. Williams and Anthony Chisholm.
