This powerful drama about a middle-class family’s disillusion with the American dream marks two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner August Wilson’s Cal Shakes debut. Directed by former Brava Theater Artistic Director, Raelle Myrick-Hodges, Fences introduces audiences to one of the great tragic figures of American drama: Troy Maxson, a charismatic baseball player-turned-sanitation worker. With his solid paycheck, hard lessons in tough love, and his loyal wife Rose by his side, Troy is the de facto head of the household; but when an affair is exposed, strength comes from an extraordinary place.
