Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, "SEVEN GUTIARS" is fifth in Wilson’s theatrical saga. 

Part elegy, part mystery, and infused with bluesy lyricism, this bawdy comedy takes an intimate look at seven African-American characters and the events leading up to the untimely death of an up-and-coming blues musician. 

Who or what killed Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton? 

Dear friends gather after the funeral to mourn and question the death of Floyd “Schoolboy” Barton. 

Set in the backyard of a rooming house in Pittsburgh’s Hill District in 1948, this tale, told in flashback, chronicles the last days of Floyd. 

He had returned home after a stint in prison to reconnect with the love of his life, Vera, with the hopes of setting off for Chicago to pursue stardom. What went awry?


Actors’ Shakespeare Project, founded in 2004, is an award­-winning professional theater company with a Resident Acting Company and extensive education, youth, and community programs. ASP performs and works in found spaces, schools, theaters and neighborhoods to present and explore the robust language, resonant stories, and deeply human characters in Shakespeare’s plays and in works by other great playwrights. Our work is ensemble-­based and focused on intimacy, storytelling, language, relationships, voice, risk and artistry within and throughout the Boston area. 


Actors’ Shakespeare Project believes Shakespeare’s words are urgently relevant to our times. Working as an ensemble of resident company members, we bring these words into the voices, bodies, and imaginations of our actors, audiences, and neighborhoods. We do this through creative projects, including intimate productions and outreach programs that are informed by the spaces in which they happen. These projects inspire civic dialogue, build relationships between people, strengthen communities, and reveal something about what it means to be human here and now.
