RADIO GOLF, Black Theatre Troupe, September 26 - October 12, 2014

By August Wilson
At the end of the century the world is just beginning. Radio Golf is the final play in August Wilson’s epic ten-play cycle chronicling the African-American experience in the twentieth century. Harmond Wilks, an Ivy League-educated lawyer with an educated and ambitious wife, wants to redevelop a poverty-stricken section of Pittsburgh. He is also preparing to enter the 1997 mayoral race to become Pittsburgh’s first black mayor. Suddenly another world intrudes when the owner of an old mansion at 1839 Wylie refuses to give up his home and make room for the development. It turns out that the house at 1839 Wylie has a more significant past than Harmond or his investors could have imagined.
