Synopsis:

In 1950’s Pittsburgh, Troy Maxson supports his wife Rose and their family as a garbageman after his dreams of being a baseball star in the National Negro League were derailed. When his son Cory aspires to earn a football scholarship, Troy’s bitterness about his own failure and high expectations for his son threaten to pull apart their family. In this Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning masterpiece, August Wilson captures a pivotal time in history with his honest portrayal of a family struggling to break racial barriers and support one another with forgiveness and compassion.
