The Drama Group to Present RADIO GOLF, 11/15
The Drama Group's fall show is "Radio Golf" by August Wilson. Performances are Friday and Saturday evenings, November 15 to 30, at 8:00, in Pilling Hall at The First United Methodist Church of Germantown, 6001 Germantown Avenue, between High Street and Walnut Lane.
"Radio Golf," the final play in August Wilson's unprecedented 10-play cycle chronicling African-American life in the 20th century, is set in Pittsburgh in the late 1990s where a successful and idealistic, Ivy League educated entrepreneur aspires to be the city's first black mayor. He and his business partner are on the verge of clinching a big redevelopment deal to revitalize the Hill District with high-rise apartment buildings and high-end chain stores. His wife is in line to be head of the public relations office of the governor. But what is the price of progress? Does building a city's future require erasing its history in the process?
The cast of "Radio Golf" includes Monroe Barrick, Kim E. Brown, Vincetta Easley, Kamili O. Feelings and Marc C. Johnson. Robert Bauer is directing.
Tickets for "Radio Golf" are $15.00 and can be purchased at the door. On opening night, Friday, November 15, every ticket purchased will admit two people. There will be a post-show discussion following the performance on
Friday, November 22.
The Drama Group has been presenting non-professional theatre in the Germantown section of Northwest Philadelphia for over 30 years. For more information about "Radio Golf" and The Drama Group, go to www.thedramagroup.org.
