Southwest Arts Center: - August Wilson; dir: LaTanya Richardson Jackson.
The play takes place in the 1960s, in a Pittsburgh neighborhood. Focus is on the characters who hang out at Memphis Lee's coffee shop: a local sage, an elderly man who imparts wisdom as learned from a 322 year old sage, an ex con, a numbers runner, a waitress who slashed her legs to keep men away, and a retarded man who was once cheated out of a ham. The play is a microcosm of an era and a community on the brink of change.
