August Wilson; dir: Brandon J. Dirden.
King Hedley has returned, but to reign for how long? With an angry scar down the length of his face and seven years of prison haunting him, King has a chance to lock away his past and achieve an entrepreneurial dream. But Pittsburghâ€™s Hill District is an unforgiving place, and the return of Elmore, a scheming conman armed with a derringer and family secrets, could strike a fatal blow to Kingâ€™s second coming. The eighth installment of August Wilsonâ€™s acclaimed play cycle examining Black America, King Hedley II is one of his most stirring and ferocious explorations of fate, honor and the daily struggles of American life.
