“Freedom is heavy. You got to put your shoulder to freedom. Put your shoulder to freedom and hope your back hold up.”
Thursday, April 27 – Sunday, April 30, and Thursday, May 4 – Sunday, May 7, JAG Productions presents the 1987 Pulitzer Prize-Winning and Tony Award-Winning drama, Fences, written by American Theatre Hall of Fame inductee and recipient of the National Humanities Medal August Wilson, one of the most important American playwrights of the 20th Century, at the Woodstock Town Hall Theatre, 31 The Green, Woodstock, VT 05091.
Fences explores the evolving African-American experience on the brink of the Civil Rights Movement, through the story of Troy Maxson, a former star of the Negro baseball league, who now works as a garbage man in 1950’s Pittsburgh. Excluded as a black man from the major leagues during his prime, Troy’s bitterness takes its toll on his relationships with his wife and son, who now wants his own chance to play ball. The recent Oscar-winning cinematic adaptation received rave reviews from critics and audiences across the country.
