It’s 1969 and change is in the air. But for Memphis, owner of a rundown diner in a dying Pittsburgh neighborhood, the civil rights movement may be an impractical dream. Torn between whether to gamble on an urban‐renewal buyout or sell his building to a predatory businessman, he finds himself caught between idealism and brutal reality. Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s searing, humorous, and potent portrait of African-American life in the ‘60s tells the story of the inner lives of ordinary people at a turning point in history. “Powerful...the drama surges with confidence…it’s a lively, probing show.” – Washington Post
