The Season of August

The Season of August

For some, August Wilson is African-American Theater.  His plays are the ones most likely to appear in anthologies as representative of the works of African-American drama. His prolific career as a playwright is highlighted by the signature achievement of having written ten dramas - his Pittsburgh Cycle - wherein each play takes place in a different decade of the twentieth century.  Wilson's plays portray the African-American experience as a conglomeration of history, poetry and everyday life.  

Cleveland Play House is proud to join 4 other NE Ohio area theatres who are all producing works by August Wilson this year.
