Wilson Cycle JOE TURNER'S COME AND GONE Live Webcast Airs 9/4Esteemed stage and screen star and noted August Wilson proponent/performer Phylicia Rashad stages a revival of Wilson's acclaimed drama JOE TURNER'S COME AND GONE tonight as part of a live webcast series presenting the ten 20th century cycle plays by the two-time Pulitzer Prize-winner, following successful presentations of Ma Rainey'S BLACK BOTTOM and FENCES last month.

The official description of JOE TURNER'S COME AND GONE is as follows: "Joe Turner's Come and Gone is set in Pittsburgh in the 1910's. The play chronicles the lives of a few freed former enslaved African Americans and deals with themes of identity, migration and the conflicts of racism and discrimination."
