Bowie Community Theatre announces auditions for August Wilson's Fences


  • Penni Barnett

    This sensational drama tells the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball leagues who now works as a garbage man in 1957 Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and his son, who now wants his own chance to play baseball. In the powerful, stunning dramatic work that won August Wilson his first Pulitzer Prize, Troy has gone through life in a country where being proud and black meant facing pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950’s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960’s. It’s a spirit that is making him a stranger, angry and afraid, in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understands less and less.
