It's Thursday, which means theater critic J. Wynn Rousuck  is here with her weekly review.

Today, she discusses Radio Golf, by August Wilson – the final installment in the late Pulitzer-Prize-winning playwright's ten-part Century Cycle.

Directed by Carl Cofield, Radio Golf is the story of an African-American real estate developer running for mayor of Pittsburgh in the mid-1990s who struggles with his role in gentrifying his childhood neighborhood.

The Everyman production stars Dawn Ursula as Mame Wilks, Jamil A.C. Mangan as Harmond Wilks, Jason B. McIntosh as Roosevelt Hicks, Anton Floyd as Sterling Johnson and Charles Dumas as Elder Joseph Barlow.

This Sunday,  Nov. 10, the Everyman is holding its rescheduled Market Center Trash Bash – a large-scale neighborhood cleanup and block party. To register as a volunteer for the Trash Bash, and for more details, click here.  All participants in the cleanup can purchase discounted $25 tickets to Sunday evening’s performance of Radio Golf.  Registration is free. The cleanup starts at 2pm, the block party is at 5 pm, and the discounted performance of Radio Golf begins at 7. 

Radio Golf continues at the Everyman Theatre through Sun., Nov. 17.

J. Wynn Rousuck has been reviewing theater for WYPR's Midday (and previously, Maryland Morning) since 2007. Prior to that, she was the theater critic of The Baltimore Sun, where she reviewed more than 3,000 plays over the course of 23 years. Her feature coverage for The Sun included a comprehensive series chronicling the development of the Tony Award-winning musical, “Hairspray.” Judy got her start at The Cleveland Press and at Cleveland’s fine arts radio station, WCLV.
