“A blockbuster and a major American play.” – New York Daily News

Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues, now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded from the major leagues in his prime, Troy has grown increasingly bitter, and his anger and frustration take a toll on his wife Rose and his son Cory, who now wants his own chance to play ball professionally.

Don't miss this opportunity to witness the impeccable storytelling in this dynamic staging of a classic American gem from one of the greatest African American playwrights.

Your seat awaits, and the journey begins now.
