Alley Theatre will host a staged reading of August Wilson’s Radio Golf in collaboration with the Freedmen’s Town Museums of Rutherford B. H. Yates Museum, Inc. and The Ensemble Theatre. The initiative aims to provide a profound understanding of the historical significance of Freedmen's Town and spark meaningful dialogues.

Radio Golf, Wilson’s final play in his 10-play The American Century Cycle, explores the themes of progress and heritage. The play delves into the tension between economic development and the preservation of cultural identity. It examines the struggles of African Americans navigating the complexities of upward mobility while grappling with the erasure of their history. Ultimately, Radio Golf interrogates the price one must pay for success and the profound impact of gentrification on individuals and communities.

The play explores themes from multiple perspectives and will afford a safe space to dialogue with each other. The thought-provoking post-reading discussion will delve into the play's themes, providing a platform for candid dialogue and in-depth exploration of the complex issues raised.
