Monroe Stage

by August Wilson
director Jourdan Olivier-Verde

The Classic American Drama of Relationships that Hold Families Together.
“One of the great characters in American drama. One of the richest experiences I have ever had in the theatre. I wasn’t just moved. I was transfixed.”—New York Post

Fences takes place in 1957, two years after the Montgomery Bus Boycott began and ten years after Jackie Robinson broke the color line that by so-called “gentlemen’s agreement” kept African-American players out of the major leagues.

Fences is a play about family, responsibility, love, friendship, and respect composed of richly complex and compelling characters and relationships.

Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro Baseball League labors as a sanitation worker in segregated Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play ball.

One of August Wilson’s best plays, Fences is the sixth play in a series by the Pulitzer Prize-winning author. It is a bittersweet drama; compassionate, moving, and thoughtful. Reflecting life, it has moments of both uplift and sorrow.

This blockbuster drama originally starred James Earl Jones as Troy Maxon and Denzel Washington starred in the 2010 Tony Award-winning revival.
