About this Event
The 1980s installment of August Wilson’s acclaimed American Century Cycle, King Hedley II follows the title character as he rediscovers relationships with his mother, his wife and his community after a long absence. Drawing on characters established in Wilson’s Seven Guitars, this masterwork shows the shadows of the past reaching into the present as King Hedley II seeks retribution for a lie that his mother has perpetrated about his father’s identity.
