In Fences, the powerful and dramatically compelling work that won August Wilson the 1987 Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award, Troy Maxson is a strong man, yet hardened by life in an America where to be proud and black was to face pressures that could crush a man, body and soul. But the 1950s are yielding to the new spirit of liberation in the 1960s. It’s a spirit that is changing the world Maxson has learned to deal with the only way he can ... a spirit that is making him stranger, angry, and afraid in a world he never knew and to a wife and son he understand less and less.
