Blues diva Ma Rainey and her band have come to a Chicago studio to cut a record, but their artistic differences nearly stop the session before it starts. Full of unforgettable characters and the raw power of the blues, this 1920s installment of Wilson's groundbreaking cycle of plays confronts the issues of race, fame, and generational divides through the rhythms of the African-American South.



August Wilson (1945-2005) The most-produced African-American playwright of all time, August Wilson was a self-taught writer whose distinctive style combined poeticism and everyday slang. The plays of his remarkable Pittsburgh Cycle chronicled the black experience in America in every decade of the 20thcentury, winning two Pulitzer Prizes and redefining African-American storytelling for a generation of theatergoers.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 15, 2008

TheatreWorks, the nationally-acclaimed theatre of Silicon Valley, proudly presents the regional premiere of Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson's final masterpiece RADIO GOLF to the Bay Area. The last of Wilson's ten play cycle chronicling the African-American experience in the 20th century, this hustling comedy-drama set in the 1990's tells the story of an Ivy League-educated lawyer seeking to redevelop a rundown area of a Pittsburgh neighborhood while preparing his campaign to become the city's first black mayor. A brilliant and bittersweet look at the forces of change in a neighborhood and a people caught between history and the looming 21st century, RADIO GOLF captures the essence of alienation and assimilation occurring throughout America.
