The Ensemble Theatre will celebrate Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright August Wilson’s 10-play "Pittsburgh Cycle" with a series of staged readings. The third in the series will be Ma Rainey's Black Bottom, directed by Allie Woods, Jr.

Wilson became an award winning playwright known for chronicling African American life through his cycle of 10-plays known as the Pittsburgh Cycle. Although the plays are not written as a series, some of the characters interconnect between plays to give a since that a communal story is being told from varying perspectives.
