August Wilson Play---KING HEDLEY II @ Arena Stage Theater
Arena Stage, 1101 Sixth Street, SW Washington, DC
Friday, March 6 8 PM
Fichandler Stage ($58)
Did you know? King Hedley II marked the fifth and last time August Wilson would be a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. He is one of only seven American Playwrights to win multiple Pulitzer Prizes.
King Hedley has returned, but to reign for how long? With an angry scar down the length of his face and seven years of prison haunting him, King has a chance to lock away his past and achieve an entrepreneurial dream. But Pittsburgh’s Hill District is an unforgiving place, and the return of Elmore, a scheming conman armed with a derringer and family secrets, could strike a fatal blow to King’s second coming. The eighth installment of August Wilson’s acclaimed play cycle examining Black America, King Hedley II is one of the most stirring and ferocious explorations of fate, honor and the daily struggles of American life.
