By August Wilson

Directed by Shirley Dunlap

Troy Maxson is a proud but embittered ex-Negro League baseball player who was denied access to the majors because of his race. Now he's a trash collector, striving to protect his family and his dignity from a society that has labeled him as second-class. But the fences he builds, both real and psychological, are not high enough to keep his family from hope. Written by one of the foremost voices in theater today, Fences is a powerful story that won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play.

Shirley Dunlap, who directed the Rep's 1995 production of From the Mississippi Delta, will return to direct Fences.
