“…universal enough to touch a chord in every human heart.”  — The New York Times

In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece, Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro Baseball Leagues is now a trash collector with little future.  Embittered and resentful, Troy builds both literal and figurative fences around his wife and son as he come to terms with his past disappointments in Wilson’s poetic, powerful, and Pulitzer Prize-winning challenge to the American dream.
