Radio Golf Broadway
"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?
