Everyman Theater's Vincent Lancisi, Director Clinton Davis Staging August Wilson's "Fences"

Fences.jpg

Fences, by August Wilson, won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award for Best Play when it debuted on Broadway in 1987.  When it was revived on Broadway 5 years ago, it won another Tony for Best Revival.  The play is in the middle of Wilson’s ten-part Pittsburgh Cycle, in which the playwright chronicles the African American experience with a trenchant and powerful voice unparalleled in American theater.  Fences opens at Baltimore’s Everyman Theater tonight.  Vincent Lancisi, the founding artistic director of the Everyman, and Clinton Turner Davis, who directs this fine production, talk with host Tom Hall about their unique staging of this August Wilson classic.   

Host, Midday (M-F 12:00-1:00)
