August Wilson's Seven Guitars

Performance Dates

The lives of seven friends are irrevocably changed when their old friend and blues singer Floyd Barton reappears with a chance of a lifetime. Infused with deep and soaring blues rhythms, this “rich and exceptionally vivid” (Variety) play pits the determination for a better future against the harsh realities ultimately leading to heartbreaking and inescapable circumstances. Director Tazewell Thompson returns to Arena Stage to direct August Wilson’s Seven Guitars — the fifth play in Wilson’s American Century Cycle and the second half of Arena Stage Giants Festival featuring August Wilson.
