August Wilson's FENCES

August Wilson's FENCES

November 1-23, 2019

Presented by The Umbrella Community Arts Center

Winner of both the Pulitzer and the Tony Award, August Wilson’s FENCES is a true American masterpiece.

Deeply affecting and a profound theatrical experience, FENCES focuses on Troy Maxon, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues, his bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball.

With one of the greatest roles ever written for the stage, FENCES is a perfect way to introduce audiences to The Umbrella Stage Company‘s newly constructed Black Box theater at 40 Stow Street, Concord.
