  3. How I Learned What I Learned

TheatreWorks Silicon Valley will ring in 2024 with a stunning production of August Wilson’s “How I Learned What I Learned.” An internationally acclaimed interpreter of August Wilson’s works, Oregon Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director Tim Bond returns to TheatreWorks to helm this heartfelt one-man theatrical memoir that chronicles the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright’s life. Following Wilson’s journey from struggling young writer to one of America’s most honored and acclaimed theatrical icons, "How I Learned What I Learned" is a tale of self-discovery, adversity, love, and what it means to be a Black artist in America. Seen in leading theatres, this show has been hailed as “complex and surprisingly funny. A crowd-pleasing 100 minutes in the company of a wonderful writer” (Pittsburgh Post-Gazette). Bond reunites with award-winning Bay Area theatre artist Steven Anthony Jones, who will star as the iconic playwright. Jones’ tour de force solo performance at Oregon Shakespeare Festival and Seattle Repertory Theatre was called “brilliant” (Talkin’ Broadway) and “a masterful performance that shouldn’t be missed” (Bay City News).
