(8/27/2014) - Gloucester Stage Company concludes its 35th season with Pulitzer Prize-winning drama FENCES, the sixth in August Wilson's ten-play chronicle of 20th century American history from the perspective of African-Americans. In Director Eric C.

Daver Morrison and Jacqui Parker bat leadoff in a lineup of strong performances.
